Our exciting yearly tradition is back for 2022. Help support the Austin Model Railway Society's mission of education about trains, railroads and the joy of model railroading -- and win some great prizes in the process!
The grand prize is a beautiful, fully functional and sceniced 4' x 6' model railroad including a full train! Everything you need to jump into the wonderful hobby of Model Railroading, just plug it in and go! Here are some photos of the layout:
