Mauldin To Host Model Train Event

Aug 31, 2018 04:12PM ● By Kathleen Maris
The Greater Mauldin Chamber of Commerce and the City of Mauldin will be hosting TRAINS, TRAINS & MORE TRAINS for the 7th consecutive year at the Mauldin Cultural Center.

The event presents the largest (42’ x 26’) push-button operated, interactive layout on the East Coast from the Atlantic Coast S Gauge model train club. The ACSG: Carolinas Div. is a group of railroad modelers interested in promoting model railroading, especially in S gauge.

The layout features American Flyer trains from the 1940’s and 1950’s, along with operating accessories, as well as the new Piedmont ‘N Southern Modular N Scale layout. The purpose of the Piedmont 'N Southern Model Railroad Club is to promote the hobby of model railroading through creation of an operating modular N-scale model railroad layout built to Ntrak and/or Bend Track standards. This layout is intended to be displayed to the general public.

The exhibit is set up in different rooms so guests can enjoy the various trains and everyone isn’t crowded into one room. Bring the kids and let them operate the accessories (including saw mill, log loader, barrel loader, and more) and “engineer” Thomas the Tank Engine train from Thomas' Cab.
