Carquinez Model Railroad Society
Official Website: http://cmrstrainclub.org/

The Carquinez Model Railroad Society is celebrating National Train Day this coming Saturday.
The society will celebrate the completion of its main line, a layout of more than 2,000 linear feet of HO scale model railroad track that loosely re-creates a portion of the old Southern Pacific Railroad line from Oakland to Sparks, Nev., from the 1940s to the present. (While the line itself is complete, the accompanying scenery is still under construction.

The society welcomes to the public see the layout at its open house on the second floor at 645 Loring St. in Crockett from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

According to the society, "The layout is the largest layout of its type in the Bay Area, constructed on three levels with two large connecting helixes on opposite corners of the layout."
