Welcome to the Indianhead Model Railroad Club Website

Model railroading is fun! That has been the motto of the hobby for many years. It's true for train fans of all ages. Let's keep it that way and share the fun with others.

This website is for the promotion the Indianhead Model Railroad Club and also for the promotion the model railroading hobby. A closely related hobby is railfanning, following the activities of full size, aka prototype, railroads and their history. That's also fair game for this website. The actual content is up to the IMRC membership, so members, submit your stories, photographs, poems, etc, to the club webmaster. (See Contact Us for the email address.)

Name that Structure Quiz

Pictures for the "Name that Structure" quiz are needed. Let's keep this to railroad structures located in the Indianhead area of Wisconsin as first choice and other Wisconsin railroad structures when we run out of them.

Submit your guess to the club webmaster. (See Contact Us for the email address.) Specify the location of the structure and the railroad that owns it, if known. Your guess and name (optional) will be listed here.

Name that Structure
Trains have crossed the Chippewa River on this bridge for many decades. From the Roger Elliott collection.
