Our 2017 Holiday Open House is December 2nd-3rd!

Saturday, Dec. 2nd, 1-5pm

Sunday, Dec. 3rd, 1-8pm

HO-scale trains will run on both levels of our new layout, replete with lots of scenery, bridges, tunnels and a helix. Children of all ages are welcome and admission is free (we gladly accept donations and we're now a 501c3 charitable organization). Note that the Caltrain Holiday Train will stop at the Menlo Park Station at 7:05pm Sunday, and a visit to our club before or after makes for a great train- and holiday-themed evening (we're located in the former Southern Pacific baggage building at the south end of the station parking lot, near Ravenswood Avenue).  If you need to reach the club for any reason please leave a message at 650-322-0685.
