Stop by and say Hi!
We are a visitor friendly model railroad club! We would love to have you stop by. Doesn’t matter if you are local or out-of-state… Novice or Expert… Stop on by say hello! We will be happy let you checkout the railroad or give you a guided tour if you like. Sometimes you may even help run a club member’s locomotive.
Our layouts are always under construction by our club members. There are no entrence or visitor fees. The clubhouse, permanent layouts (HO & N) and traveling layout (N) are supported by membership dues and donations.
If you visit a few times and decide you want help improve the layout or be a regular our prototypical train operation sessions then ask for a membership application.
Guests under 18 years of age MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
Becoming a member is very inexpensive. Membership benefits include the ability to work on layout construction projects, participate in RR shows, run your own DCC (Digital Command Control) trains, vote in club meetings, name tag, and even help operate members’ at-home layouts.
EVERY Wednesday is a great night… but the 4th Wednesday of the month is PROGRAMED OPERATIONS. At 7:30pm sharp our club conducts a prototypical operating session on our permanent N-scale layout. Rail traffic is directed by dispatch via track warrants. During the session, the layout operates point to point with Cincinnati Ohio as our Western terminus and Bound Brook New Jersey as our Eastern terminus.
In addition to running OPs on our permanent layout, our member’s open up their home layouts for operations as well. In the future, we plan to host OP sessions on our HO layout and N-scale traveling layout.
You don’t need to bring anything… just plan on running trains the full 2+ hours if you can.
Come explore the craftsmanship, the technology, and the fun of playing with trains. Great fun for all ages!
