ORANGE COUNTY MODULE RAILROADERS IS 100% NMRA
HISTORY OF THE CLUB.....
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 sometimes 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 displays at shopping malls, model railroad shows, including Great Train Expo, and NMRA conventions all around the southland, fulfilling our mission to demonstrate the hobby to the public.
Ask any member about the unique advantages this form of module
railroading has to offer -- beyond a static display.
Where We MeetOur club has two regularly scheduled meetings each month. The first is our regular business meeting on the FIRST Tuesday of each month, held at the Duck Club at Irvine Ranch Water District, on Riparian View approximately 7/10 of a mile south of Michelson in Irvine.. The second is the meeting of our Executive Committee (also called "the E-board") which meets at Katella Grill in Orange on the last Wednesday of the month. Both of these meetings try to get started around 7:00 p.m., southern California traffic permitting.
