About Us

Our club members get together for fun, fellowship, and to operate large scale trains.

We do not have an elected executive, constitution, or budget.

Membership is free!

If you are a model railroader, you may already know some of our Club Members.

If not, the easiest way to meet us is to join us on a Saturday morning during our operating season.

Our operating season normally runs from the Victoria Day Holiday Weekend in May to the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend in October.

Well behaved children are welcome no matter what the age.
