1989 - 1994
The club was organized in August of 1989, by former members of the Elmhurst Model Railroad Club. The members arranged to rent the basement of a hobby shop in Franklin Park to house the layout, and contracted Don Cardiff, a professional model railroad builder, to design the track plan. We spent the next four years laying track, wiring the electrical panels, and building scenery. In May 1994, the Club decided to look for a new location.
