KMRHS - Building Expansion

In 1999 the KMRHS began planning and fund raising for an expansion of our facilities at 9336 North Riverview Drive in Kalamazoo. The expansion will nearly double our current building space, allowing for expansion of our HO scale model train layout, improved meeting space, storage and repair space for our 10x30 foot and 4x8 foor modular portable layouts, office space and an ADA restroom.

In the Spring of 2014 we reached our funding goals and the membership authorized Phase 1, the construction of the fully enclosed shell.

The following is a list of events for phase 1:

  • Site Preparation - Complete (July, 2014)
  • Start of construction - Started (Aug 7, 2014)
  • Shell contruction complete - Started (Fall, 2014)
  • Interior - substantially complete - (Fall, 2017)
  • Construction of the new HO layout - In Progress


  • Photo Gallery - The building is complete. This page will be updated as construction of the new HO Scale layout progresses.
