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.
Let us know if there are other ways we can help you enjoy your hobby. You can use our Helper Page to contact us and we will put you in touch with one of our members to assist you.

Wecome aboard. We know you will enjoy the  World's Greatest Hobby .
