This is a starting point for your journey into and through the wonderful world of model railroading. While we may not have all the answers here, we have links to many other places where you can find incredible information about our hobby.
Whether you are a beginner with your first train set, or a more experienced modeler looking for new tricks, tips, and techniques, we invite you to browse through our pages using the easy-to-use menus at the top of this page (and all our site's pages).
Our calendar of events lets you see model railroading events within and near our area in North and South Carolina. Most of these events are open to visitors and the public in general and you are invited to contact the sponsors to arrange a visit.

 Normally RMU is held in February and has been well received
over the years, but now we are seeking the memberships help
in finding a new venue to hold the classes. This could be a church
with classrooms or a school. We need 3-6 rooms for the instructors
to set up tables and seating for the members.
Please contact a club representative listed on our contact page.
