The excitement is real, GATSME owns a building in Rockledge. It is a large open space with a high ceiling, plus a secondary building which will be our workshop. The possibilities are near endless and that is the real value in this property.
April 10th, 2014, the club signed the papers and took possession. Our planning process is now running at full speed. From the physical standpoint, we will be making many repairs and replacing many of the systems in the building. In order to build a model railroad museum, we need a nice environment for visitors, club members and our model trains.
You can help us reach our goal by making a contribution using the link below. In addition, we are looking for help in donated goods and services. GATSME is a not for profit corporation and donations are tax deductible. Stay tuned to this web site and the Museum site for updates.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!!

UP NEXT: Pointing of bricks outside and inside, are nearly complete. Outside pointing will have to wait for warmer weather. Inside pointing is continuing and nearly complete. Then, installing bathrooms, and heat. Air condition would be nice but we need to raise more money to be able to afford that.
A committee has been formed to come up with a design for the new Railroad. Construction should begin in summer of 2015.
