List of model railroad clubs
The Belmont Shore Model Railroad Club — Started out as a small group of modelers gathered together in the Belmont Shore City Library with the intent to form the country's first N-scale model railroad club.
The club first took shape in the basement of a hobby shop in Long Beach. Soon there after, it found a home in Signal Hill. This was the clubs first real start featuring a full size layout. Boasts a premier club, the envy you might say of all other railroad clubs in the country.
Sacramento Central Railroaders - The Sacramento Modular Railroaders is a non-profit, educational-historical corporation registered in the State of California. This was to be accomplished through the construction of a premier HO scale display layout having prototypical train operations and scenic details familiar to California.
Meetings rotated between the hobby shop and various members' homes while bylaws were drafted and monthly dues were established. Golden Gate Model Railroad Club — They have a layout that is the result of nearly forty years' effort to create a railroad in miniature with the communities it serves and combined with engineering and geographical features found on railroads in California.

Support N Scale Model Railroading - become a member today! About N Scale Modular Railroading. The building of a module is not difficult. Building a module has the distinct advantage of "forcing" the builder to do all the phases of layout building, without having to do so much of one phase that they get "fed up" with it, as can happen when building a large home layout.
So often the scenery doesn't get built or the track work is never made to work right, or some other building phase is neglected. Getting a module ready for a scheduled meet will do wonders for a builders speed and concentration!
Another advantage is that the module can be turned on its side or upside down, making working on it much easier, providing better lighting, and making it possible to avoid hot solder drips. The module can be brought to another part of the house where the rest of the family is, or taken outside when a smelly job needs doing.
The small footprint also allows for experimentation with scenery techniques. With the rise of electronic publishing, many documents are now being offered through Amazon in Kindle format. Download the Membership Brochure right now. Log in. Join us. Recent news.
