Who We Are

The Capital Region Model Railroad Club is a model railroad club located in New York's Capital Region.
The club membership is made up of people who live or are from the Capital Region, and share an interest in model trains. Every member of the club brings a unique talent to the club which makes the club stronger. The only requirement that a member needs to have is an interest in railroading, whether it be the full-size or model size.

Our Purpose

The Capital Region Model Railroad Club promotes model railroading by bringing it out of the basement and to the public. We also strive to simulate railroad operations; educate the public about railroad history and lore; and provide an enjoyable time for its members and the public.

Where can you find us?

The Capital Region Model Railroad Club displays a modular layout at shows throught out the year. Our notable shows include the Great New York State Model Train Fair in Syracuse, the Upstate Model Railroader Train Show in Glens Falls, and the Great Train Extravaganza in Albany. In addition, the Club has a sectional layout in the City of Mechanicville.

Why Join?

Our members joined the Capital Region Model Railroad for a variety of different reasons. Some members joined because they have a train sitting at home and have no place to run it. or to share their love of the model railroading hobby with others. Some members are interesting in learning new things in model railroading so they can use it on their future layouts. If you are interesting in joining, visit us here ; or at a train show; or show up at a business meeting on the second Tuesday of each month.
