Southern California's Premier Modular Railroading Group

OCMR is 100% NMRA


logo of OCMR Orange County Module Railroaders Inc,


The original group was started by local Southern California model railroad manufacturers in the early 1970s, as a way to display their products at hobby shows. Organized as the Southern California Module Builders, the club met at the Campbell Scale Models factory. They displayed their first operating modular layout in 1973. At various times in the club's history it was known by several different names, including The Orange County HO Modular Group and Module Railroaders - Orange County Division. In 1997, we streamlined the name to simply Orange County Module Railroaders.  We are often referred to as OCMR.   In 2005, A separate corporation, Orange County Module Railroaders, Inc. was formed as a nonprofit, nonstock mutual benefit corporation and the assets of the original club transferred to the corporation.

We continue taking the hobby to the public, setting up operating displays at museums, fairs, seasonal exhibitions, model railroad shows, and conventions all around the southland.

Ask any member about the unique advantages this form of module railroading has to offer -- beyond a static display.
