The 2018 Maine Model Railroad Tour will be on September 8th.

The Tour will be in Southern, Central and Mid Coast areas.  Anyone from Eliot to Ellsworth will have at least half a dozen quality layouts within reasonable driving distance.  A list of layouts currently on the tour is at Maine Model Railroad Tour 2018 SCHEDULE.   More information will be added periodically as it becomes available, so visit this website regularly to learn the latest news about the Tour.
The 2018 Maine Railroad Tour provides a variety of layouts in different scales, gauges, states of construction, and styles of scenery. Because of the overall distances involved, it is unlikely you will be able to see all the layouts in the allotted time.  We urge you to review the detailed descriptions of  the layouts so that you will be able to visit the layouts that are of most interest to you. Layout descriptions can be found at 2018 Tour Layout Descriptions. By selecting the particular layouts you visit, you will have more time to spend on-site at the layouts of most interest to you.
The layout "Locations" and "Directions" on the Tour Map are accurate for Google.  Click on the icons to show that information. Your car GPS may not be as accurate so the detailed layout descriptions also give pointers or landmarks to look for.  Because of the overall distances involved, consider carpooling.  This will also allow you to "talk trains" while and share observations between layouts. To encourage layout owners to be hosts in future tours, remember that they have opened their homes to you and act accordingly!
