Pasadena Model Railroad Club Open House

Pasadena Model Railroad Club

5458 Alhambra Ave, Los Angeles, 90032

1:00pm to 5:00pm

With over 70 years The Pasadena Model Railroad Club operates the Sierra Pacific Lines, one of the largest HO Scale operating Model Railroads in the world covering almost 5000 square feet. The railroad has over 30,000 feet of hand laid steel rail. The 1700 foot single to four track mainline with ten cabs allows for operation of multiple 30+ foot trains (up to 60 cars long). Yard panels throughout the railroad allow for operation of another 15 to 20 trains. Sierra Pacific Lines operates trains from all eras: steam, diesel and electric motive power, old and modern freight, classic passenger trains and Amtrak; with each train being prototypically accurate for that railroad and era. Breathtaking scenery, operating semaphore signals, and theatrical lighting all combine to make this Model Railroading as you always dreamed it could be - with the long train physics and vistas that just cannot be found on any other layout. Every locomotive is powered... and there's a reason for that. Power changes en route, helpers and multi-unit consists and DPU are not just for show - they are for physics. A show fit for the whole family and of a lifetime.
