The Northern Michigan RailRoad Club is an all gauge railroad club. We have been meeting in the Grand Traverse, Michigan area for a number of years now bringing model train displays to the public to enjoy at several venues.
If you are a model train enthusiast, you are cordially invited to join us in the pursuit of model railroading fun and fellowship.
The NMRRC meets the first Saturday of each month in Mapleton at the Peninsula Market on the Old Mission Peninsula The regular business meeting is at 10:00 am followed by a work and running session at noon until 2 pm. Other work sessions will be on selected days to be announced.
Members of the NMRRC have a vast wealth of knowledge from the collecting of antique toy trains to the very latest digital technologies used for running trains that is available today. WE operate and build modular layouts in G, O, S, HO, and N gauge. These layouts are worked on and run at our clubhouse in Mapleton.
