Texas Northern Model Railroad Club
Next Open House!


Saturday September 29th, 2018: 10:00 AM- 6:00 PM

Collin Creek Mall, lower level by JCPenney

Held in conjunction with the Fall Plano Train Show (click on link below for more information), the Club will once be hosting an open house for 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 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, and large freight yard.

This is a “must see” model train layout and we hope you stop by after the train show. 

Enter Collin Creek Mall through JCPenney Alma Road entrance. Layout is on the mall lower level just outside JCPenney.

We're currently building a new N scale railroad and have completed the benchwork. Outside mainline tracks have been laid and electrical connections have begun in earnest! N scale trains will be running for the next Open House, September 29-30, 2018.

The landscape on the Texas Northern Model Railroad Club is always changing! One of our current projects is the demolition of the old diesel engine servicing facility in preparation of a new facility.
