Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2016 open houses!

We will start collecting dates in August. Look for the completed schedule to be posted around October 1, 2017.  We are looking to improve the website with more pictures, including one of the layout owner so you know who to look for during a visit. We are also hoping to add a short description of each layout in the future. More pictures of the layouts have been added to the pages.

If you are a Delaware layout owner and will be open, please contact Joe Walters. If you live in Maryland (EXCEPT Garrett or Allegany Counties), you will need to contact Fran Giacoma. A special thanks to Fran for all his help and hard work.

The email addresses are:

Thanks to all who donated so generously towards the maintenance of this site. We hope your generosity will continue this year. Look to the left side of this site for a link for your donations. If you have problems with this, please inform Karen.

Our Facebook page is very active with visitors posting photos. Layout owners are also able to post pictures of their layouts to entice visitors. The Facebook page is "Model Railroad Openhouse Schedule." Please join our social community and participate.

This website would not be possible without the assistance of Karen Darling. We want to thank her for her hard work. If you see her, be sure to let her know she is appreciated.  If you are a layout owner, see the note below on pictures.

Thank you!
Joe Walters

NOTE:  If you are hosting an open house and have a picture of your layout that you would like featured in the rotating pictures at the top of each page for this year, please email it to Karen prior to September 15, 2017 at kfdarling@gmail.com.  Each picture must be at least 500 x 200 pixels.  I'd prefer you send the full size image, let me do the cropping. Cell phone photos are often not adequate. Keep in mind that I need to use a portion of the picture that will show your trains and/or layout in the 500 x 200 pixel area.  I'll let you know if it is acceptable.  Due to the large number of folks participating, only one picture from each person will be used. If your layout has a name and website, please let me know and I will include it in the listing. We are also working to include a photo of the layout owner.  Please send a picture of yourself along with the layout picture.

Thanks to those who
donated to the cost of running the site! 

Karen Darling
