All aboard! In conjunction with the annual Jackson Antiques Assembly, the Greater Baton Rouge Model Railroaders invite all model train lovers to their Spring Open House and steam up at the Republic of West Florida Museum, where the club operates one of only two publicly accessible outdoor garden railroads in Louisiana. Real live steam model locomotives will be demonstrated as well as both indoor and outdoor electric trains in all scales. 11 am–3 pm on Friday; 10 am–3 pm on Saturday. College Street, just off Highway 10. Free. greaterbrrailroaders.com.

Our club is located at the REPUBLIC OF WEST FLORIDA HISTORICAL MUSEUM, 3406 College St, Jackson, LA 70748. We are on the hill above the train station. Look for the blinking railroad crossing signal and the outdoor garden railroad display.
From Baton Rouge, take I-110 north to U.S. 61 (exit 8C). Travel north on U.S. 61 for 12 miles, turn right on Highway 68 (There is a Mobil Gas Station at the turn off). Travel east for 11.5 miles, turn left on Highway 10 at the traffic light. Travel two miles into Jackson, turn right on College St. The museum is 2 blocks north on the right.

Admission is free.
