We have a permanent HO layout which
has been on the build for over 20 years.
We completed the conversion to DCC control in 2008 and have been
adding signals and detection for more realism and automated running during
It represents a railroad set in the transition steam/diesel era running
from Syracuse, NY to the St. Lawrence River.
Our modular HO layout is now set up
year round exihibt in one of our rooms.
The era of each module is set by its owner and is more mixed than the permanent layout.
The age of the modules range from 20 years old to still being constructed.
Each year we support the Train Fair sponsered by
Central New York Chapter, National Railway Historical Society
