The Schuylkill & Lehigh Model Railroad Club operates independently from the W,K & S Railroad but follows a similar schedule. The Coach Car opens at 12:30pm and is generally open and running HO scale model trains on the layout until 5:00 pm. Stop in and visit! The Schuylkill & Lehigh Model Railroad Layout is located directly behind the Kempton Station in Coach Car #72.
Admission to visit the layout is "free", although a "free will" donation box is available at either end of the car for those that wish to help support the organization. The Club has no other revenue other than donations from visitors and modest dues charged to the volunteers that operate and maintain the Schuylkill & Lehigh Model Railroad.
Our Operating hours generally mirror those of the WK&S and are generally from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on normal Sundays. If the WK&S is operating on a different day or at a different, special time, the Schuylkill and Lehigh MRR will operate on a similar time schedule. The Schuylkill Model Railroad will not operate in the evenings except for the certain "Special Evening Events". Those events will be listed soon!
