Sorry you missed the 20th annual Piedmont Pilgrimage. Please check back in October 2023

October 2022Welcome!  The 20th annual Piedmont Pilgrimage, the hobby’s premier “open house” model railroad layout tour program is here!  We have an all-new website this year, so please be patient as we continue tweaking it.  I am pleased to announce that most of our Tour Schedule has now been posted, though there are still a few more tour locations to come.   As Co-Chairperson for this annual event (along with Joe Sullivan), presented by The Piedmont Division of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA), I am delighted that you are looking to join us for another exciting year of model railroading action around the greater Atlanta, Georgia area.

2022 Piedmont Pilgrimage Co-Chairperson

For our 2022 Piedmont Pilgrimage event, we presented over 40 of our traditional open house, in-person tours, all around the great Atlanta area.  The first tours began Saturday, October 22nd, and others followed (weekend days only) through Sunday, November 20th.   The complete tour schedule and all of the latest details for these tours was posted here on this website as they become available. 

We are really looking forward to our open house layout tours next year.  

Please check this website carefully for the latest information and access requirements before departing to any of our Piedmont Pilgrimage tour locations!  All tours are subject to cancellation, and the guest access requirements of our hosts are subject to change at any time.

On behalf of the Piedmont Division of the NMRA, and all of our hosts this year, I welcomed you to the 2022 Piedmont Pilgrimage.  Please stay safe & healthy, and enjoy this great program.  To the trains!
