Welcome to the WWW home of the Piedmont Railroaders!
|Warrenton Branch RR||Who we are!|
The Piedmont Railroaders was founded In Warrenton, Virginia in February
1995 as an organization for railroad enthusiasts of all ages, and
to provide a place where the members could share their individual interests
in railroading. |
Promoting all aspects of the hobby from railfanning to history to prototype
equipment restoration and preservation to model railroading, we endeavor
to create a common bond among our member's varied interests. Although we do a lot of model railroading, we are not just another model railroad club.
The Club supports various community activities by participating in public
train shows, town sponsored railroad festivals, and in support of the Boy
Scouts of America Railroad Merit Badge program.
We are the creators of the Civil War Train Display built for the celebration of the Civil War Sesquicentennial and located in the town of Remington, Va. See the Remington Civil War Project link below for a preview.
We invite you to join our
Club and to share your interests in this fascinating hobby
