2014: A year in review – We’ve come a long way!

December 30, 2014

Much has happened in over the past year with the Gatsme Model Railroad Club and the new Rockledge Model Railroad Museum.  In June of 2013, Gatsme lost their lease for their building in Fort Washington, PA.  In late 2013, Gatsme began looking for a new building.  On April 1st, 2014 Gatsme purchased the Mill Building on Sylvania and Montgomery Avenue in Rockledge, PA.  The Mill Building was then to become the new Rockledge Model Railroad Museum; home for the Gatsme Model Railroad Club.  After purchasing the building, we then cleaned out the facility and started renovations.  Below is a timeline of milestones we accomplished since April 1st.

Overall, in 2014, we collected over $36,000.oo in cash, services and kind donations such as building supplies.  On behalf of all the members at the Rockledge Model Railroad Museum, thank you!  We couldn’t have gotten this far along with the building clean up and restoration with out your help.
