Annual Fall Layout Tour

The Annual Layout Tour is held every November (National Model Railroad Month). It is an opportunity for local model railroaders in the area to open their layouts up and let the public see their work. During the month of November, each weekend will feature layouts in different areas of Houston and the surrounding areas.

The 2021 San Jacinto Model Railroad Club Annual Layout Tour has concluded. We would like to thank everyone that came out to visit the layouts this year. Please check back in late summer and early fall 2022 for information on the 2022 Layout Tour.
