The Southern New England Model Railroad Club is an O Scale model railroad club located in Gardner Massachusetts where we are constructing a 40 by 65 permanent layout.  Most of the track and Digital Command Control wiring is in place which allows us to operate trains.  Scenery and structures are being added.  New members are welcome.

The Southern New England Model Railroad Club has sponsored the O Scale National Convention in 1998, 2008, and most recently in 2013. Our portable layout was also displayed at the NMRA National Convention in Hartford CT. in July 2009 where the layout won the Best in Show and Chairman's Awards. Click on the NMRA Awards on the left to view the awards.  We also sponsor an annual October Train Show and participate in the "Tour de Chooch" open house event in November.

For other events of the Southern New England Model Railroad Club  please check out TRAIN SHOW and CALENDAR of EVENTS   links on the left.

Southern New England Modular layout is for sale click Layout Sale on the left for details. Also there is a fall trains show Saturday Oct.4th 9:30 AM to 4 PM.

The clubs schedule of events include Wednesday evening work sessions, occasional Saturday work sessions and a members-only bi-monthly business meeting.

The layout is a double track main line generating  freight traffic from several online industries consolidated in the "Roland Roberts" main yard and then dispersed to other locations throughout the rail system. The state of the art design provides a linear walk-around model railroad using the "mushroom" techniques to greatly increase running length (850). It's a great design and continues to provide interesting model railroad construction opportunities for the membership. Please check our progress on the layout by clicking on the "Layout Construction" buttons on the left. Anyone interested in visiting or possibly becoming a member should contact the Membership Chairman as noted below.
