The Club has been in the same location longer than any model railroad club in the US.

Built in 1916 by the Milwaukee Road as a bridge station, it was abandoned and converted into the club’s location in 1936 and is the longest running model railroad club in the same location in the US. Many of the original features are still intact, including subway tile, tin ceiling panels, and some steam heat fixtures. The models inside are built to ¼-inch scale, some dating back to pre-WWII.

A former Milwaukee Road Station, built more than 100 years ago, is the “temporary” home of one of the oldest O Scale layouts, anywhere. We took over in 1936, a few years after the railroad stopped using the building. This club has been in the SAME PLACE longer than any other club in the USA. However, we are not the oldest club. Not quite. Not yet.
