The Society's Modular Committee operates a traveling HO Scale "modular" model railroad layout that depicts various scenes along the Reading in miniature. Featuring a variety of authentically modeled trains running simultaneously, the layout can be over 100' in length, depending on available exhibit space! During these exhibitions, our Sales Committee also operates a sales table at which Reading Railroad souvenirs are available for purchase. Click here for a PDF brochure about the Modular Layout. Currently scheduled exhibitions are listed below; check back often for updates!
