The Gatsme Model Railroad Club has been successful for over sixty years. The club built three railroads and shared each with the local community. While we always had fun, our primary goal was educating about the railroads in Pennsylvania and the hobby of model trains.
MOVING TO ROCKLEDGE AND TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Once we made the decision to purchase a building, the reality of ownership made all of us pause for a second. Hey, we own the building, we can fit this out as we wish and every improvement will be permanent. No longer dependent on landlords, we can focus more closely on making the best possible model railroad museum.
WHY DO WE FUNDRAISE?
Every year we must raise funds to help pay the bills such as: mortgage, water and electric utilities, school taxes, property taxes, security monitoring, sprinkler and safety inspections, building insurance. and miscellaneous repairs.
Rockledge Model Railroad Museum and Gatsme Model Railroad Club, Inc. are both recognized by the IRS as 501(c)(3) organizations.
