Antelope Valley N' Scalers

The AV N' Scalers was founded in August of 1994. The first meeting was held at the Lancaster, Ca. Library. There were five people who showed up. After talking about starting an "N" scale model railroad, it was decided to go the "NTRAK" route. The Club started by building four 4ft. corner modules. Today we are a very diverse group of very active guys and gals from Santa Barbara to Victorville, from Riverside to California City. We are truly a club "From the Desert to the Sea" and most of Southern California.


Group 160 NTRAK Club

Group160 was formed in Burbank CA in1993. The group uses a modified version of the N-Trak standard (NTRAK 2000) that allows for the third or “Blue” line to be set back from the other main lines.


Hemet San Jacinto Railroad Club

The Hemet San Jacinto Model Railroad Club consists of 18 members currently. We are mostly HO and N scale; the club is also interested in anything else concerning trains; such as: O scale, Garden railway, Prototype, Operation, and Photography.


N Trak Express PO Box 304, Riverside, CA 92502 (mail only)

We are an N-scale modular club and particpate in Gats in southern Califonia. We also do other types of shows to help expose N-scale to all ages. We are here to have fun, learn from each other and enjoy our trains. Most of our members live in or near North Orange County, CA. Our members include beginners and experts. Train shows are held at the local Convention Centers, fair grounds, schools and private venues. Meetings are held at local restaurants, club members homes or at the shows.


Orange County Module Railroaders, Inc., Post Office Box 3577 Fullerton, CA 92834-3577

Instead of building a large, permanent layout, members build and maintain modules that can be assembled with modules built by other members into a large, operating display. Each person works from the set of club standards that specify module construction. These standards include size, framework, track.


Orange County N-gineers PO Box 7072, Fullerton, CA 92834-7072

By building your module to NTRAK specifications, you can use your module with other clubs all over the United States. There are even some groups in other countries who build NTRAK modules. We, as clubs or individuals, often join other modular 'N' Scale clubs, in order to enlarge the layout for special public, or NTRAK conventions.


Southern Nevada N-Trackers

Formed on November of 1997 the purpose of the club is to promote N-TRAK augmented by oNeTRAK and encourage members in the skills of N-Scale model railroading. For small areas, the table top modules using T-TRAK.

California South Coast On30 Modular

Narrow minded, want to be? Never Done and Always Changing, the California South Coast Modular (CSC) On30 Model Railroad group's mission is to bring the joy of narrow gauge trains to all ages at train shows. On30? On30 means the models are O scale (1:48 running on 32mm gauge track). The 'n'signifies Narrow gauge, 30 means 30 inches or 2.5 feet rail spacing. Many groups in other states and several other California On30 Modular groups build to a common standard that allow us to combine operations when displaying at shows and meets. Currently, CSC frequently operates in conjunction with the California Central Valley Modular (Yahoo group: On30CCVMod) and the California Central Coast Modular (Yahoo group: CCCModOn30).

Green River Junction Railroad

The Green River Junction Railroad received its name from the famous Green River pass in Wyoming and from a local focal point in Southern California where Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties meet. So the “junction” was formed as a modular group to model HO scale in all eras and railroads. Industries and scenes on the layout employ techniques that we refer to as “Proto-Freelance or selective compression by which selected scenes, buildings and effects that are reduced in size, but captures the essence of the realism of the railroad facility and industry.

Riverside Live Steamers P.O. Box 5512, Riverside, CA 92517

Back in the 1950's, Joe Hunter, a well known Riverside industrialist, realized that steam locomotives were disappearing from the railroads that passed through Riverside. Knowing that future generations would not know the excitement of seeing, smelling and hearing the sounds of steam locomotives, he had a vision. Why not duplicate a steam train in miniature? RLS is pleased to offer thousands of people an opportunity to see, hear, and smell what steam locomotion is all about. We like to think Mr. Hunter would be very proud of our accomplishments during the past forty-six years.
