Mineral Bluff GA - Tri-State Model Railroaders Open House

Tri-State Model Railroaders Open House

Tri-State Model Railroaders Open House

The Tri-State Model Railroaders offer a few Open House events at the Mineral Bluff Depot from 10:00 am until 2:00 throughout the year.

The model railroad layout depicting Copper Basin Railroading in the early 1950's is developing nicely and the Tri-State Model Railroaders invite you to come enjoy the depiction, learn how railroads played such an important role in the development of the Tri-State area and to learn the unique history of the restored brick depot.

This building was constructed over 100 years ago with locally made brick and is the oldest public building remaining in Fannin County. In addition to the opportunity to view and inspect this building close up, you will also be able to observe the progress being made by Tri-State Model Railroaders on their large "HO" Scale model railroad representing the Louisville & Nashville Railroad's "Hook and Eye" Old Line running from Marietta, Ga through Ellijay, Blue Ridge and McCaysville/Copperhill to Etowah, TN and the branch line to Murphy, NC.

Enjoy history, model railroading, and great conversation about this Tri-State Region's railroading history. For further information call 828-361-2210.
