This is a new Blog created to promote the existence of the Schuylkill and Lehigh Model Railroad. This model railroad is located in Coach #72 in Kempton, Pennsylvania; the site of the excursion train, The Wanamaker, Kempton and Southern Railroad. Yes, thats right, the layout is along one wall of an old passenger coach which sits on a siding behind the Kempton Train Station.

The model railroad operates every Sunday in the months of May, June and September. Trains run on Saturday and Sunday during july, August & October. The Schuylkill and Lehigh Model Railroad is open from 1PM - 4PM on the same days as the WK&S. Admission to the model railroad layout is "free" although Good-Will donations are accepted.

The S&L MRR has been in existence since the mid 1960's. The dedicated members manage, maintain, and operate the model railroad for the benefit of the general public and for our own enjoyment during the Spring and Summer months as well as into late October. We do this because we like kids and we like trains.

We hope you visit our Blog often and also be sure to check out our web site;

Hope to see you in Coach #72 soon!
