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.
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
firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
