CANCELED: 2021 Mad City Model Railroad Show & Sale

The SCWD Board of Directors, Mad City Rail Show Manager and Staff regret to announce that the February 2021 Mad City Railroad Show & Sale has been cancelled. At this time it is not clear that it would be safe to hold the show or that the local health rules would even allow the show to take place. We have held off making this decision for as long as we could hoping the situation would improve but it has not. 

SAVE THE DATE: Planning for the next show has already started. We hope to see all of you on the 19th and 20th of February 2022 at the Mad City Model Railroad Show and Sale.
