The Lehigh & Keystone Valley Model Railroad Club was formed in 1994 at 316 S. New St. in Bethlehem, Pa. After 2 years we lost our lease and was forced to move. In November of 1996 we purchased a building at 705 Linden St. in Bethlehem, Pa. (current location). After months of building we had our first open house Christmas of 1997. After 16 years of construction we have a 5,000 sq. ft. double decked layout consisting of about 7,000 ft of track, over 250 turnouts (150 are powered). We have a helix connecting the lower and upper level. The scenery is about 75% finished.

  In 2005 we switched from DC to DCC using the NCE DCC System. Shortly after we incorporated a computer system and JMRI Software to run Train detection and signaling. ​​The detection and signaling is done by Digi-trax equiptment. We have a CTC Room with 6 computer screens to operate the layout. The detection and signaling is about 65% finished.

  In 2006 we became the
Lehigh & Keystone Valley Model Railroad Museum​​. We are a 501C3  tax deductable organization.

  The museum appreciates the sponsorship of local businessess that have helped to preserve ​​
the history of the Lehigh Valley Railroad. The sponsorships have allowed the museum to expand the layout, open the doors to the public, and enhance the educational outreach program.
