This is an HCC members only outing with a limited number of places

The HO Model Engineer’s Society (HOMES) and model railway museum in Hamilton will be celebrating their 75th anniversary early in the New Year.  To help them celebrate, members of the Hamilton Camera Club are invited to photography their newly refurbished and upgraded HO scale representation of the Hamilton and area railroading environment circa 1955.

The HOMES group is dedicated to accurately representing the “transition” era of railroading in Hamilton as steam engines give way to diesel locomotives.  Elaborate scale models of Hamilton and area landmarks can be photographed in situ along with long-gone railroading facilities from over half a century ago.

** The HOMES group is hoping to submit an article about their upcoming 75th anniversary to a prominent model railroading publication.  They would greatly appreciate any photographs that our members might be willing to license to their group for inclusion in that publication as well as for a revamping of the groups web site, which can be seen at trainweb.org. **

* If you would like an advanced look at the HOMES models, as well as over 15 other model trains layouts in the area check out the 20th Annual Hamilton and District Layout Tour on September 24th between 9:00am and 5:00pm., tickets are $5 at HOMES. *


Tripods and flashes are permitted but please leave any bulky coats and garments in the waiting area.

Please do not move anything!

If you would like something altered to set-up a shot, ask one of the modellers if they could make the change it for you.
