The Hawkeye Model Railroad Fundraiser

November 16th: 4-Close

The Hawkeye Model Railroad which is a 501c3 non-profit organization focuses on educating the general public and its members about railroading and its history through public displays & seminars, lectures, and hands-on operation of model railroading equipment.

We are currently building a new 42' by 80' building at the Johnson County Fairgrounds as our current home owned by the city of Coralville is being re-developed sometime later this year.  Since the building is new we borrowed design elements of an old freight depot.  Large overhangs, corbels supporting the roof, 2 large freight doors (fake), and tall skinny windows.  It has taken us several years to raise enough money to have the shell of the building built and it is almost complete.  Hooray!!   Now, we are actively seeking donations to help finish the inside of the building as well as doing the work ourselves.

Materials needed to complete the inside include construction lumber, plywood/drywall, insulation, electrical, and plumbing items.  The 42’ by 80’ building will contain a 2,000 sq. ft. HO scale layout room, 2 ADA bathrooms, museum/conference room, and a workshop.

Thousands of people visit the fairgrounds each year especially during the fair and we are really looking forward to sharing our layout, experiences, and passion to a much larger public group.  We can't wait to expose more people to the hobby and show them how exciting model railroading can be.

Any amount donated brings us that much closer to finishing our project and getting the building move-in ready.  Please be a part of our journey as we continue to grow our community and surrounding areas by showing them the fun of Model Railroading.
