San Diego Model Railroad Museum To Hold Festive Fundraiser “Ales N’ Rails”

The San Diego Model Railroad Museum in Balboa Park will host its festive fundraiser, Ales N’ Rails, with tickets available for sale October 8.

2021 marks the 6th Ales N’ Rails celebration, which brings together local breweries and train-loving merrymakers to support the nation’s only accredited model railroad museum. During the fundraiser, all six of the museums’ model railroad layouts will be in full operation. The festivities also include beer tastings, an opportunity drawing, and an ugly sweater contest. This year marks an important milestone, as the fundraiser falls on the 40th anniversary of the museum’s first public opening in early December 1981.

Tickets for Ales N’ Rails will be available beginning October 8 through the museum’s online ticketing platform. Tickets start at $30, with discounts available for San Diego Model Railroad Museum members. Guests can also purchase Ales N’ Rails tickets in person at the museum admissions window or at the door of the event. Event sponsorships are available to individuals and corporations; contact Membership and Development Manager, Amanda Ochoa. The museum will adhere to all government health & safety requirements in place at the time of the event.

More event details, including live musical entertainment and participating breweries, will be released as Ales N’ Rails nears!
