In brief: Railroad modelers plan open house


GREENACRES – The Evergreen Railroad Modelers will have an open house tonight at the Greenacres Shopping Center, 18213 East Appleway Ave., from 6 to 9 p.m.

The Modelers, made up of more than 20 members, have spent the last two years creating an HO layout in a 25-foot by 60-foot room. The railroad model has mountains covered with trees, city scenes, towns, 18 bridges, tunnels and a seaport. It also includes numerous trains running with sounds of steam and diesels.

The event is open to the public.
