The Rockledge Model Railroad Museum has announced an Open House Event on Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 12n – 3pm.
Gatsme Model Railroad Club purchased the shell of a former lace factory—and a neighborhood eyesore—at 323 Montgomery Avenue in Rockledge, PA, in 2014. After renovating the shell into habitable space, the members of Gatsme began building the museum’s primary attraction: an HO scale model railroad layout de- picting railroad activity in southeastern Pennsylvania in the 1950s. The exhibit model railroad represents a portion of railroad operations from West Philadelphia over the line to Reading PA and continuing on to Shamokin PA. It is inspired by the neighborhoods, towns and industries along the way. It features the trains of the Schuykill Valley Branch, which runs primarily through Montgomery County PA. A portion of the layout will feature the Reading Railroad’s Newtown branch, which ran through Rockledge and serviced both passengers and manufacturers in the borough.
The Rockledge Model Railroad Museum will also be open to the public with the following schedule
November 10, 2018 – 12n – 3pm
December 8, 2018 – 12n – 3pm
We are also currently accepting new memberships.
