Research Library

 Our reference library is one of the best in the nation.

We have 1,000s of magazines, books, videos on railroading. For prototype or model railroading, you won’t find a better spot to do your research.

If we don’t have it, one of our research experts will be happy to point you in the right direction.


Scouting & Youth Groups

Several of our members are Eagle Scouts and we understand the value of the Scouting program. We support both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

We have certified Merit Badge Counselors for the Boy Scouts. They are highly qualified, with a large club of very experienced people to draw from for more information.
