Christmas Season Open House
We are located across from the Monaca Legion in the old Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad station, right next to the tracks. Look for the Model Train Display. sign on the sidewalk.
If you have any questions or would like more information, Please Drop Us a Note.
Each year, during the Holiday Season, the Beaver County Model Railroad and Historical Society opens its doors and invites the public in to share the results of our work. During this time we encourage anyone with an interest in railroading, both model and prototype, to stop by the Society Headquarters, located at 416 Sixth Street in Monaca, and spend some time with us.
During Open House you will have the opportunity to see a wide variety of locomotive power and rolling stock in action. In addition to Society owned equipment, members are encouraged to bring their personal equipment in and run it on the layout. At times this can make for quite a collection of trains making their way around the tracks!
In addition to the opportunity to watch running trains you can also take the opportunity to look around the rest of the Society headquarters. The library boasts quite a collection of railroading periodicals, books, films, prototype operations guidelines, etc. The workroom is where we do most of our fine detail work such as detailing engines and rolling stock, painting, and production of scenery.
