The Fourth of July in Rockledge!

 

After the parade, we had an open house and hosted over 50 people to see our progress. We received many compliments
on the building looking better than it ever has. One lady said that the outside looked like a train station. THAT was what we
were going for!!!

In September, Rockledge has a car show. We hope to have another open house then with trains running! Stay tuned for updates.


Celebrating our first year in Rockledge!

In April of 2014, Gatsme took possession of our building in Rockledge. With thanks to our many friends that donated tools, materials and funds, we have restored the building to good order. At the end of the year we received approval to build two modern ADA bathrooms. That construction project is underway. Our friends and members donated wood, electrical components, pipe and fittings. We need additional dollars to buy the plumbing fixtures, tile and a water fountain (required by code). Please consider making a donation on our PayPal page. We are a 501 (c) (3) charity and your donation may be tax deductible. All of us thank you for your help and support.

We have created a DVD with movies and still photos of the Railroad from a perspective that you will never see standing in the aisles. The DVD sells for $15.

We are a group of railroad historians who are building a museum-quality representation of railroads in the 1950’s. Our members have studied architecture, geology, engineering, history and prototype railroads. The result is an incredible miniature world, to which our photo gallery can not do justice.

Since 1975, GATSME has been located in the basement of the Old Fort Washington Elementary School on Madison Avenue.  Over the years, GATSME has upgraded our space many times. We take great pride in the building and its history. May 30, 2013 we held our last meeting in this location. See History page for photos.
