Cambridge Model Railroad Club
The Cambridge Model Railroad Club was formed in November, 1975. The purpose of the club is to promote model railroading and to encourage its members to develop their modeling skills and to support the NMRA (National Model Railroad Association). Some of our members are also NFR (Niagara Frontier Region) members, and some are working towards their Master Model Railroader achievement. The club members' layouts range from table sized pikes of sectional track through fully scenicked basement sized empires with handlaid track throughout and command control. All of the layouts in the group have one thing in common, though. They provide hours of enjoyment to their builders.
We get together monthly on a rotating basis at the members' homes. Twice a year, we hold a 'show and tell' session, where all the members can show off a structure or piece of rolling stock that has been altered or enhanced from the original kit or in some cases scratchbuilt from photos or blueprints. At each of our monthly meetings, the host is required to put on some sort of clinic.
The clubs former display layout, based on the Grand River Railway, was featured in the February 1997 Railroad Model Craftsman.
