Club and Member Equipment


    Our club runs on a Digitrax DCC system which controls our club yard, corner modules and member modules.  The DCC system allows multiple trains to run simultaneously on our two main lines.  One line is reserved for passenger trains and the other is for freight.  Club and member modules and trains range from the steam era with an ice house and reefers through the transition era with streamlined passenger trains into the modern era including an Amtrak Acela, a military base and container trains. The club corners offer even more variety!
