Our New N Scale Track Plan - Currently Under Construction

Serving Model Railroad Enthusiasts since 1982

Texas Northern Model Railroad Club
You're Invited To Attend
Our Next Open House!


Saturday August 11th, 2018: 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Collin Creek Mall, lower level by JCPenney

The Club will be open to the public to see this spectacular model train layout. The layout is fully operational with scenery. The layout is 60' x 35' and has over 300' of mainline track, long enough to run 100+ car trains. The layout includes a large city, steel mill, oil refinery, diesel and steam engine facilities, intermodal facility, large freight yard, and a recently completed large staging yard that has greatly enhanced our weekly operating sessions!

This is a “must see” model train layout and we hope you stop by to visit us!

New N Scale Layout Under Construction!

As our club has expanded with a larger membership we now have a strong contingent of N scale model railroad enthusiasts and are currently in the planning and building stages of a new N scale layout that will feature all DCC train control and Wi-Fi throttle capability (using Android or Apple smart phones and tablets) using JMRI. We invite all N scale modelers to come by and check out the progress on the new layout (track plan included at top of this page).
