Wrecking Crew Events

The Wrecking Crew meets on Monday nights from 7:00 to 9:45 PM at the McWane Science Center in Downtown Birmingham, Alabama. We have training classes, work sessions on our modular layout (the LG&W), and have business meetings.  In the past we have worked on a hobby shop layout for Oak Mountain Hobbies in Pelham, Alabama, worked on the Bessemer Hall of History Boxcar Layout,  and have built special projects such as the Harry Potter / Hogwarts Layout.  Some years we have a Train Show in conjunction with the Steel City Division of the SER in the fall of the year. Our last train show was The Magic of Model Trains held in conjunction with The McWane Science Center from November 8, 2008 to January 19, 2009. Since 2005 we have held an annual Holiday Train Show at The McWane Science Center running from November to January.  In past years we have also taken our modular layout to about three Train Shows a year in other cities around the Southeast. Every summer, we have a family lake party on Logan Martin Lake near Birmingham and we have a year end Holiday Party.

For a three year period up until July, 2005, we had our Monday night meetings at the Westlake Mall in Bessemer, AL. We also opened the LG&W Layout to the public on most Saturday's from 10:00 to 2:00. However, the Mall closed in July, 2005 and we lost our club meeting space. In October, 2006 we were invited to do our first Holiday show at The McWane Science Center. The show was a big success and McWane offered to provide us with a club space. Currently the LG&W is shown only at The McWane Science Center.
