We are a club of “O” Gauge electric train enthusiasts that enjoy our hobby of running trains and setting up train show layouts at venues in Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland. Our layouts are modular. Members build their own “modules” to our club standards. Modules contain three tracks and are all built to the same specification so that they readily interconnect. An electric bus cable connects to each module to provide electric continuity along the entire layout. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary in 2015. Our long history is a testament to our commitment to our community and to advancing the model railroad hobby.
