Many of our members have built a layout that is available to book for shows, exhibitions etc.

Collectively they cover a wide range of scales, themes, and locales in North America and they are built to be displayed and operated.

Below you can find a current list of layouts available.

You can contact the builders directly to arrange and book for your show.
