A recent article in the Wall Street Journal painted a dim picture for the future of model railroading.

We disagree!


Model railroads are a system that is connected by a set of rules. Much like computer programming, model railroads appeal to adults and children with creative, inventive minds.

In model railroading, community matters. When you operate with a group or participate in a club, you make new friends and learn new modeling skills.  All of us are smarter than any one of us. That’s what makes a model railroad club such a great learning experience.
