Established in 1953, the Lansing Model Railroad Club is a hidden gem in the area with a multi-level HO scale layout complete with railroad yards, cities, industrial scenes, rolling countrysides, mountains, bridges, and much more. Visitors can get a bird’s eye view of the model train action from an overhead walkway. The club resides in the 1890s era Millet railroad depot that was moved on the property in the 1960s. Also, on the grounds is the former Michigan Avenue (MA) railroad tower and various full-size railroad signals. Open every Thursday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., the club also is open to special tours based on volunteer member availability. The club hosts three special open houses each year, including Lansing's Be a Tourist in Your Own Town. In addition, the club sponsors the annual Lansing Train Show and Sale at the Michigan State University Pavilion in November, which is the largest show in the state with over 500 tables of model trains for sale.
A great option to explore during down time between sports events.
