CROSSVILLE – Volunteer Energy Cooperative recently presented the board of the Crossville Model Railroad Club a donation to support their 20th anniversary in 2021. A gigantic train show is planned for Oct. 30-31, 2021 in conjunction with the anniversary celebration and National Model Railroad month.
In honor of the 20th anniversary, the club has prepared a 2021 commemorative calendar. Each month features photos of scenes from different scale trains that are on display. Calendars are available for a $10.00 donation.
The Crossville Model Railroad Club, located just off I-40, is a big attraction for visitors to Crossville and the Crossville Outlet Center. In 2019, over 22,000 tourists, modelers and train enthusiasts visited the 4600 square foot suite to see the trains in action and view the display. The Crossville Model Railroad Club is free to all and is supported by your generous donations.
The club is currently open noon to 4 p.m. Friday thru Sunday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. These limited days of operation will continue into 2021 due to the pandemic. All staff wear masks and practice social distancing. New members are welcome and membership applications are available at the front desk.
