Model trains on display during Piedmont Pilgrimage

KENNESAW – The local chapter of the National Model Railroad Association is celebrating National Model Railroad Month by sponsoring a tour of more than 80 layouts throughout Metro Atlanta.
 
The layouts – ranging from N scale to G scale and located in cities throughout Metro Atlanta – are featured as part of the “9th Annual Tour of Atlanta's Great Model Railroads” – also known as the Piedmont Pilgrimage. The layouts are open to the public free of charge during scheduled times through Nov. 26.
 
For those looking for larger trains, the Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth will be hosting the tour this Saturday and Sunday. The 34-acre Southeastern Railway Museum features more than 90 pieces of rolling stock and an operating layout.
 
For a complete schedule of the tour, details about the model railroads that will be featured on the tour and photos of the layouts, visit www.piedmont-div.org/pilgrimage. Books with information about the tour are available free of charge at many local hobby shops.
