Model Train Layout Update – September

It’s slow and steady. The Smoky Mountain Model Railroaders’ club layout is starting to come together nicely. Hopefully, we will be running more model trains soon.  Here are some photos from a recent work session.

If you are interested in joining us, come out on Tuesday evenings starting at 7pm. Caboose Way, Clyde, NC 28721

O-Gauge Train Club Update

Smoky Mountain Model Railroaders’ club layout is progressing nicely. Much of the track wiring is done and we are moving on to wiring up the many accessories and lights. The SuperStreets roadway has been installed but still needs wiring. An El Train will be installed above the roadway soon. Members are working hard on adding scenery details and ballasting the hundreds of feet of track.  Outside, the clubhouse and grounds are looking great!  Gravel has been added to the parking area so we shouldn’t have to worry as much about the rain.

If you are looking for a model train club in Western North Carolina to join now is the perfect time to become a member. The normal club meeting/work session is Tuesday evening at 7pm. Members are currently working on other days and most weekends as well. If you are interested, send us an email at info@smmr.us

Beginning Again

We’re setting up in our new 30′ x 50′ space, graciously hosted by Buffalo Creek Vacations in their new Station. We could use some help on Tuesday evenings (and just about any other time until we get operational)

New Harbor Backdrop Completed

Thanks to our wonderful backdrop designer and artist, Bronwyn Blenn, the harbor scene now has a backdrop up. Next up is blending it with the facility walls and the other backgrounds. Don’t you think she’s done a great job?
