Ridge Model Railroad Club





Many thanks to Jim Davis and Cecil Smith for sharing these photos. The Monon Railroad Historical-Technical Society would also like to thank the Ridge Model Railroad Club for their hospitality and opening up their layout to our group. I wish I had been able to attend. I was a member of this club between 1982 and 1988. Several of the building pictured I built.
