    Have you ever wanted to build a model train layout, but weren’t sure where to start? Come join the Temple Railroad & Heritage Museum and the Central Texas Area Model Railroaders at the next Introduction to Model Railroading class. Whether you are considering building your own town or hoping to help your kids with a new hobby, this class will get you started. The class will be held on Saturday, February 13 from 9am to 12pm and covers a range of tasks that go into building a model railroad, including choosing the right scale, hooking up the electronics, caring for the train, building scenery and structures, and where to shop for supplies.

    To give you a taste of what your own model railroad could be, the class includes a visit and discussion of the museum’s new layout and the multiple large layouts built by CentraMod in the neighboring Moody Depot. This class is for ages 14 and up. Cost is $10 per person and pre-registration is required. Please call or email the Temple Railroad & Heritage Museum at 254.298.5172 or rrhm@templetx.gov for more information or to register for this class.
