Martin County Model Railroaders, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation that has been located at the Martin County Fairgrounds in Stuart, FL since August 1993. The club is one of the few clubs that operates 5 permanent layouts in different scales, HO, N, G, O and S.
Our club events include two open houses, an annual Train Expo, and we are open 8 days during the annual Martin County Fair. Sometime in the next few years, The fair will move to a new location and our goal is to build a new building on this site and create a Train Museum open year-round.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club was forced to cancel our May open house and our attendance at our December open house was drastically reduced. Our Train Expo each January is our main source of funding and it looks like this may be in jeopardy. The proceeds of these events in addition to our annual dues and sponsorships, pay our rent and utilities. All our labor is done by volunteers.
We are looking to raising $5,000 to help pay our rent and utilities. Please help us keep model railroading alive and stay in operation during these difficult times.
