Clubs and Groups

This list of clubs, museums, modular groups, organizations and rotating “round-robin” groups focus on O Scale 2 Rail model railroading. Some are formal and others are informal. Some are clubs with permanent layouts, modular layouts and home layouts or a combination.  We do our best to provide the best information available while also protecting the privacy of those the contacts.  We do provide enough information to make contact.  We depend on you and the listed groups to keep the information current.

The O Scale Central and O Scale Trains magazine will be sharing club listings as a cooperative venture between OSC and OST. Watch for these same listings to be available in the OST magazine.

Eric Peterson

The National Model Railroad Association, Inc. advances the global scale model railroading community through education, advocacy, standards, and social interaction.  NMRA supports all Scales.


There are over 150 NMRA Divisions – groups of NMRA members in local communities. Most hold regular meetings featuring interesting and informative presentations on subjects ranging from “how-to” clinics to prototype railroad slide presentations. Many also have a regular newsletter for members.  Many NMRA Divisions also hold train shows open to all scales that include sales tables and operating display layouts.


There are 18 NMRA Regions across the globe and each Region is made up of many Divisions. Regions usually hold annual or semi-annual conventions which can include presentations and clinics, as well as tours to model layouts, prototype tours, and even banquets and swap meets. All Regions have a member newsletter.


Every summer the NMRA National Convention brings together its members for a week of clinics, contests, layout tours, prototype excursions, the National Train Show®, and dozens of other exciting activities. Every year it’s held in a different city, so it makes an ideal family vacation.


In addition the monthly NMRA Magazine will also be available on line soon.  The NMRA has extensive educational information on line for all scale.  Additional member only information included modeler contact information as well as EduTrain recorded clinics.

NMRA continues to maintain model railroad standards and provides additional recommended practices information on many topics for all scales.

One of the best parts of the NMRA is the frequent opportunities to interact with other modelers in person and on line.

O Scale Central is also a Special Interest Group within the NMRA.

Formal, permanent layout, NMRA 1/48, On3, HO, N
Description: The East Bay Model Engineers Society was founded in 1933 and ranks as one of the oldest modelling clubs in the nation. Our highly-detailed model train layouts represent prototypical scenery in Northern and Central California. We run both freight and passenger trains typical of the steam era through modern day diesels. Our three main modeling scales are O scale (1:48), HO scale (1:87) and N scale (1:160).

The O Scale layout is 4000 sq. ft., with four divisions in different levels, over 5000ft of hand laid track. We operate with either DC or DCC. Layout and signal control via JMRI. We also have an interurban electric line. The On3 scale layout occupies over 400 square feet of our building. It is intended to capture the flavor of the western mining and logging railroads. It also operates DC or DCC. The O Scale members generally meet on Friday afternoons and evenings for work projects.

We run trains every Sunday, April through December, from noon to 5pm.  We are also open Saturdays (noon to 5 p.m.) for viewing the displays, but no trains will be running. We are closed Christmas Eve/Day and New Years Eve when those fall on regular open days.

Admission Prices: $5 for Adults, $3 for Children.

We offer a non-membership Annual Pass for Frequent Visitors to the museum at $29.00 a year for individuals and $45.00 for families. The Annual Pass provides free admission for 12 months to all our shows during our operating season April – December.

We offer a Free Trial Membership with one of the three scales (N, HO, O) for those interested in full membership. It is a time to get to know each other and see if there is a mutual fit. This period can last for up to 6 months until a decision is made whether to apply for full membership.

Dues for Full Membership are currently $240 per year for Seniors (over 18) and Families (up to 2 adults and 4 children under 14 living in the same household).

Contact: Bob Peppel
Tel: 770-695-7830
Contact: David Payne
Tel: 770-910-0091
Venue: Permanent layout, NMRA 1/48
Description: The club was founded in 1937 and moved to its present location in 1946. The layout is a point to point operation squeezed into a 25 x 75 space. The layout is traditional in every sense of the word. It is a straight DC operation with the layout divided into power blocks, our only surrender to modernity is that some of our lever/cable/counterweight switch machines have been converted to Tortoise machines. We operate on a time schedule train order basis which requires 5 yard operators and 3 main line cab operators as a minimum for satisfactory operation. From time to time we include switch lists to make it even more interesting. Our goal is to operate a real railroad in miniature.

We meet every Monday night from 7:30 to 9:30 (except for major holidays). Many Monday nights are operating sessions interspersed with maintenance sessions as necessary. We also have an operating session on the first Saturday of every month from 10:30 am to approx. 1:00 pm. All sessions are open to the public. Our monthly dues are $20 and we currently have memberships open.

Southern New England Model Railroad Club

Gardner, Massachusetts
Contact: Rich Godfrey
Tel: 508-829-4529
Venue: Permanent layout, NMRA 1/48
Description: The Southern New England Model Railroad Club is an O Scale model railroad club located in Gardner Massachusetts where we have constructed a 40’ by 65’ permanent layout. Operation uses NCE Digital Command Control, line-side signals, and a computerized Dispatch center.  A new yard, industries, scenery and structures continue to be added. New members are welcome. We also sponsor an annual Fall Open House and participate in the “Tour de Chooch” event in November. The club’s schedule of events includes Wednesday evening work sessions, monthly Saturday work sessions, monthly operating sessions and a members-only bi-monthly business meeting.

The model railroad is loosely based on the ill-fated actual Southern New England Railroad, also known as the “Titanic Railroad”.  The layout is a double track main line generating freight traffic from many on-line industries which is consolidated in the “Roland Roberts” main yard and then dispersed to other locations throughout the rail system, both modeled and imagined. The state of the art design provides a linear walk-around model railroad using the “mushroom” technique to greatly increase running length (850’). It’s a great operating design and continues to provide interesting model railroad construction opportunities for the membership. This includes all aspects of the hobby – operating, scenery, model building, signaling, etc. Check our web site for more updates at:

Anyone interested in visiting or possibly becoming a member should contact the Membership Chairman, Dennis Lyons, 109 West Princeton Road, Westminster, MA 01473, Phone (978) 874-2075 or .

Our club layouts have seen significant changes as a result of work on the building the layout is located in. This is a good thing and has provided us the opportunity to make some changes. Our next open house should be an interesting one for both returning and new visitors alike! In the meantime, if you’re interested in joining the club, there’s never been a better time since parts of the layout are being rebuilt from the benchwork on up!

The O scale layout occupies a 20′ x 25′ area and will include On3 Narrow Gauge and Standard Gauge Freight and Traction. The 3′-gauge line will serve a coal mine. The Standard Gauge line has been expanded with a longer mainline run and interchanges freight with the 3-foot line. The Traction runs trolleys from a small city to a lakeside resort area. Scenery represents an Appalachian setting with heavily forested hills. Steam powered trains predominate on the Narrow Gauge and wooden interurbans are powered from the overhead trolley wire.

Tel: 519-664-3737
Venue: Permanent layout, NMRA 1/48
Description: St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway is North Americas finest “O” Scale Layout. Showcasing Southern Ontario during the 1950’s. Come see our huge world renowned display accurately portrayed to every last detail.
In 1982 AJ1 was moved about a kilometer up the road to a Steel building. In this new home the original display was expanded and dubbed as AJ2. The display grew to over 3000 square feet and operated in Aberfoyle until its last show in May 13th 2012. With the land that housed Aberfoyle Junction being developed the display desperately needed a new home. With help and generosity of a few key people it was decided that the Display would have a new home in St. Jacobs. The display was then cut into 51 sections and moved over 40km’s away to its present location in downtown St. Jacobs.
St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway Show Dates Admission Fees – Can be purchased Online or at the Door. Adults $8.00 Seniors $7.00 Children $5.00. Check the website for show dates.
