Freight Station Front Door

The model railroad exhibit is being constructed for the Boothbay Railway Village to portray railroading in Maine during the 1950só1960s timeframe which will allow both steam and diesel locomotives.† The current HO scale layout has been under construction since the fall of 2006 and will take several years to complete.† The exhibit is housed in a replica of the Maine Central freight station in Bowdoin, ME located at the top of the hill near the Antique Auto Exhibit.


All of the work on the layout is done by volunteers, and it is funded by annual dues, donations, sales of donated model railroad equipment, and an annual raffle. The group is always interested in donations of model railroad layouts, locomotives, rolling stock,† buildings, scenery materials, tools or reference materials. These items will be used on our current layout or sold at model train shows.† For more information see our Raffle Page.


The building is handicap accessible with a short ramp at the entrance and aisles designed to ADA standards



The Model Railroad Group meets Thursday afternoons and evenings year round.† Please come and feel welcome. Contact the museum for more information
