Chattanooga Choo Choo Model Railroad Layout Closing

Event Date: 
Sun, 01/18/2015 (All day)
The Chattanooga Area Model Railroad Club's "Chattanooga Southern" model railroad layout located in the Model Railroad Museum at the Choo Choo Hotel complex closes Sunday January 18, 2015.

Due to the conversion of the Choo Choo into a dining and entertainment center, the club is required to vacate the space it has occupied for more than 40 years.

The "Chattanooga Southern" opened in 1975 after two years of construction.  When it opened, it was the largest public model train display in the country.  Over the years visitors from every state and numerous foreign countries have marveled at trains traveling past Lookout Mountain and other Chattanooga landmarks.

Plans are in the works to build a new layout elsewhere at the Choo Choo, but no timetable has been established.
