South Coast Model Railroaders

 This is the home page for the South Coast Model Railroaders Club located in North Bend, Oregon.

The club origins go back to 1993 as a loose knit group of HO scale modelers. Without a club location, the idea was for each member to buld one or two modular tables to later be connected when a clubhouse was located. Meetings were held at individual's homes and a hobby shop in a round robin fashion.

 A location was established in 1994 and the members built a 60x18 foot oval modular railroad which lasted until February 2005. Fortunately the club was able to relocate in a larger 100x75 foot room and a more accommodating facility at 665 Virginia, North Bend, Oregon.

     

Each member's personal module was incorporated into a newly designed layout with a few additional tables added with a complete non-modular mountain division added along two walls. The maximum grade in the mountain division is 2.5 percent with passing sidings on each mainline, each with an approximate capacity of 21 cars. There is a total of nine scale miles of track.


We're halfway between North Bound Highway 101 and South Bound Highway 101 on the South Side of Virginia. For a map of where we are, click here.

There is a central yard that provides a storage track for each member's cars separate from their modules, allowing members the freedom of not having to remove their cars from the layout after each operating session.   

The control system is a Digitrax DCC that has a capacity of up to 22 trains operating simultaneously. Auto reversing was our latest electronic improvement and we are looking at upgrading the control system to one better suited for a large layout.

The club meets every Thursday at 7 p.m. New members are welcome so those that are interested can come visit.

The coffee is usually hot.

  The people are always friendly.

The trains are digitally controlled.

And the modeling never stops.

About this site: Like our layout, this web site is a work in progress. We'll soon be adding more photos and additional pages including (hopefully) a Rail Store with unique SCMRR Club-designed items. Return often and see the progress of the layout and when on the Oregon Coast, drop in.
