EVERY FIRST SATURDAY OPEN HOUSE – first Saturday of each month except August, 10:00 a.m. to noon:  Each month, we invite everyone to our open house, with trains running and the opportunity to visit with members about model railroading and the Flagstaff Model Railroad Club operations.


Labor Day Weekend 2019:  Join the Flagstaff Model Railroad Club for our open house throughout the fair.  Open 10AM-10PM Friday through Sunday; 10AM-4PM Monday.  Over 9,000 visitors enjoy our trains each Thomasyear during the fair, including the famous Ad Train highlighting our sponsors;  Thomas The Tank Engine; and Monday’s last hour caboose train. Building #3 just inside the entrance. No additional fee, just fair admission.

Almost Every Tuesday, 7:00 p.m.:

Club members work on wiring, scenery and layout projects.  Weather and other factors keep us from guaranteeing the club will be open every Tuesday.  Contact Dave Nash at his office (928) 779-1380 to confirm.
