Model train group to host open house
OAKFIELD — The Genesee Society of Model Engineers will host the club’s 19th annual holiday open house on Dec. 4.
The open house will be at the club’s facilities located at 50 Main St. above M&T Bank. It is a free event and will take place 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Stairway access only.
The club’s facilities feature operating layouts in O Gauge (Lionel), HO & N. Club members will be available to answer people’s model railroading questions.
Organizers described it as a great family-oriented event filled with photo-ops and fun for kids of all ages.
“The Christmas holidays seem to bring back those childhood memories of a model train and miniature village around the Christmas tree”, said club President Mike Bakos in a news release. “Our members are busy keeping the tradition of trains and the holidays alive. We invite you to visit and enjoy one of Genesee County’s best kept secrets.”
This year’s open house will be one of the many “Ornament Stops” featured as part of Oakfield’s Christmas in the Village celebration. The ornament hunt is just one of many activities that will be taking place in Oakfield throughout the day.
The Genesee Society of Model Engineers is open Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. Business meetings are held the last Tuesday of each month.
