Valley Model Railroad Club: Open House & Swap meet – South Elgin

August 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Clintonville Substation

Located a couple of miles before the end of the Elgin Branch of the IPP and approximately 15 feet off the IPP is the Clintonville power substation. It is a substantial brick building constructed in 1903, which once operated as a passenger train station of the Chicago, Aurora & Elgin Railroad (CA&E).

The parking lot and grounds are always open to the public and visitors are welcome to stop in the building during club hours.

The Valley Model Railroad Club invites everyone to stop and visit our upcoming
Open House and Swap meet on Saturday, August 28th from 10am – 5pm. Vendors (train enthusiasts) will have tables set-up outside to buy and trade train related items. Visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to run trains set-up inside (club members will be there to assist). Additional information can be found on our website at or by visiting our Facebook page under Valley Model Railroad Club.

Although this is not an Illinois Prairie Path event, it is hosted by a partner organization and may be of interest to IPP users.  It is an opportunity to see the Clintonville Substation.
