The Piedmont Railroaders is an active club of over 30 members
We enjoy watching trains, riding trains, and participating in public train shows and community train festivals.
We have a monthly club meeting and publish a monthly
<< Meetings >>
Monthly Membership Meetings:The Club meets once
a month for our monthly business meeting on the fourth Wednesday of the month
either at 7:00 PM at the Sun Trust Bank ( 251 W. Lee Highway, Warrenton, VA )
in the lower level conference room or at another location in Remington.
Weekly Membership Meetings:The club's model train room is open twice a week for member's use. We have a three track "O" layout, a two track HO layout, and a two main line "G" layout. We operate with analog, DCC, and even live steam on our large "G" two track layout. These are all available for club member's use. -
<< Community Activities - Train Shows >>
Each year the Club participates in several train shows within an hour's drive of Warrenton.
The HO scale modules are constructed to an NMRA compatible specification. This allows Club members to interconnect their modules into different size and shape layouts based upon the amount of space available at a train show. The modules can and sometimes are combined with modules from other clubs to make even larger layouts.The layouts are powered and controlled by a digital command and control system (DCC) manufactured by Digitrax.
The club also has a portable "O" and a portable "G" layout that we take to shows, along with the club's HO and member HO modules.
The following shows are typically supported
by the Piedmont Railroaders:
Warrenton Santa at the Caboose: Every December we take our club portable "G" layout to the town's Santa at the Caboose festival. We set up outside on the shanty platform, next to the town caboose. Rain, snow, we run outside. Always a hit with the kiddies (and adults).
Please visit our Upcoming Events page for the details of future shows.
<< Speeders >>
Some of our club members have speeders (standard gauge MOW
rail cars), and enjoy riding the real rails, but on a smaller scale. If you
don't know what a speeder is, then you need to check out these pictures - - -
<< Newsletter >>
A monthly newsletter, "The Piedmont
Local", is sent to members homes either electronically or by the postal
service as a reminder of the next upcoming membership meeting and to announce
the program to be presented at the meeting and any significant business
matters to be discussed. It also has articles written by and for the members.
