BACK YARD GARDEN RAILWAYS - NOT YOUR LITTLE CHRISTMAS MODEL TRAINS!
The Shoreline Model Railroad Club invites you to its Annual Open House Tour on Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22, 2014 from 10 am – 4 pm. in five separate railroad locations in Delaware with one to four trains running simultaneously. One of the locations is in Magnolia.
This FREE, family-oriented event is a great way to see some wonderful Back Yard Garden Railways.
These trains are NOT your average, little Christmas model trains! Some of these locomotives weigh over fifty pounds are more than three-feet long! And that’s just the engine! These are permanent outdoor layouts with villages, tunnels and waterfalls. A model railroad built outdoors takes on a realism that nothing else can match.
The Delaware Division of the Western Maryland Railway, operated by Shoreline Model Railroad Club members, Mike and Claudia Leister of Magnolia, Delaware features four separate tracks which allows for multiple trains to run at the same time. The railroad is located in woodlands and has multiple heights, a tunnel, a bridge, a village and a large waterfall to add interest and must be viewed from multiple angles to see all that is going on. There is one loop that children over five can operate with parental guidance. The railroad has undergone several expansions since it began operation in 2010.
The address of the Delaware Division of the Western Maryland Railway is 1466 McGinnis Pond Rd., Magnolia, DE 19962 and the phone number is (302) 335-4747. Look for the railroad signs.
