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 2023 San Jacinto Model Railroad Club Annual Layout Tour is happening this entire month of November and into December! We look forward to seeing everyone out at the layouts!
