  • June 23, 2024 Open House & Swap Meet

    The Los Angeles Model Railroad Society (LAMRS) hosted its first Open House &Swap Meet since we left our Hawthorne location and moved to Harbor City. We were pleased and amazed at how many folks turned out to tour the new layout. We also celebrated our most successful Swap Meet in club history. Every dollar we made will be put to good use as we continue to build the new layout.
