While we're watching the big railroad construction project at Wilson and Broadway, you're invited to take a look at another railroad world, this one in miniature, this Sunday, November 22
. The Garfield-Clarendon Model Railroad Club invites you to its biannual open house, to be held 1pm-4pm
in the lower level of the Clarendon Park Field House, 4501 North Clarendon. Parking is available in the lot south of the field house (enter on Clarendon opposite Agatite).
|"After a long day this Union Pacific freight is about to enter Georgetown for a crew change before continuing." (From the club's website.)|
The club's website, at www.garfieldcentral.org
, says, "Most people won't get the opportunity to run a local freight, operate an important passenger train at full speed with farms whizzing by or get to perform switching at a busy rail yard. At the Garfield-Clarendon Model Railroad Club you can escape the world you know to a magical snapshot in time, hand-crafted, hand-operated and always different."
We've been to a previous open house and it's really a unique and entertaining time.
