You can get an up-close view into the hobby of model railroading tomorrow (June 29) at Hidden Valley Park.

The Burlington Model Railway Club will open the doors of its clubhouse to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. where three different displays will showcase the various aspects of the hobby.

Three model railway layouts will be on display, with the HO and N scale layouts operating inside and the garden gauge layout outside, assuming the weather cooperates.

Established in the 1980s, the club is known for its dedication to the hobby and invites enthusiasts and curious visitors alike to witness the evolution of model railroading over the past decade.

Model railroading has transformed, boasting more accurate and authentic detailing that resembles real railways.

“The introduction of precision electric motors has enhanced the performance of these models, whether it’s a replica of an old-time steam engine or a modern diesel locomotive,” a message on the club’s website reads.

Future open houses will take place July 27, Aug. 17, Sept. 7 and Sept. 28.

It is located at 1137 Hidden Valley Road.
