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 has come to an end. We would like to thank everyone that came out to the layouts and all of those who took the time to open their layouts up to the tour. Please check back in the months before November 2024 for details of the next upcoming tour. In the meantime, please check out the galleries below for a sample of what was open on the 2023 Fall Layout Tour.

The galleries below feature photos of the layouts open that weekend.
November 3-5 - Northwest / Bryan - College Station
November 10-12 - North Houston / Spring / Kingwood / Crosby
November 18-19 - South Houston / Pearland / Pasadena / Friendswood
November 24-26 - Thanksgiving Layouts
December 1-3 - West Houston / Katy / Sugarland / Richmond

In 2020, the tour went virtual due to the Covid pandemic. Layout owners created videos of their layouts to continue the layout tour tradition.
