Two great programs at the Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's January event

The fabulous Frederick and Gerrit Braun, creators of Hamburg's Miniatur Wunderland, pose wearing the Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's 60th anniversary T-shirts. The shirts were presented to the staff at Miniatur Wunderland by our own Dave Downie, who visited Hamburg a few years ago.

We have two great programs for our first meeting of 2020! First on tap is a trip to Chicago and Milwaukee in 1980. Highlights include a glimpse of the White Pines Model Railroad Club. See the Milwaukee Road's yard and shop after the railroad shut down.

Then it's off to Miniatur Wunderland! Learn how they started and watch the building and operating of the world's largest model railroad. See how creativity, model building and technology are all brought together. This is part one of a two part series.

The fun starts on Friday, January 10 at 7:30PM at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard. The canteen will be open, and we'll have our monthly model and photo display, as well as our 50/50 draw. Not a member? Not a problem! Guests are always warmly welcomed.
