The Tech Model Railroad Club was one of several organizations responsible for creating the first videogame at MIT, SpaceWar! If you're curious what they're up to these days, check out their upcoming open house.
The Fall 2009 Open House of the Tech Model Railroad Club of MIT will take place Saturday, November 21, in room N52-118 on the MIT campus (on the first floor of the MIT museum building, 265 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge). The club will be open for two sessions, from 2-5 and 7-10 pm. This event is open to everyone, and admission is free.
The Tech Model Railroad Club was founded during the school year of 1947, which makes this year our 62nd year of operation.
We will have many trains running throughout the day, and will be happy to show and tell you about our:
- computerized control system
- hand-laid track
- streetcar system
- Green Building Tetris game
- and much more
You can find more information about the open house and the club in general (including directions to our club room) on our web page, http://tmrc.mit.edu
We look forward to seeing you there!
