The Detroit Model Railroad Club was founded in January, 1935 as an off-shoot of The Detroit Society of Model Engineers.  The Detroit Union Railroad is the basis for our freelance theme with connections with the various railroads which served the Detroit area in 1957.  The narrow gage will depict eastern type narrow gage. We have 35 active members and a number of associate members.  Calling the old Holly theater our home, we feel that being in an old theater creates a unique atmosphere for model railroading. Being the largest model railroad in the State of Michigan brings people in from many areas.  We use digitalcommand control and sound.

Meetings: Tuesday nights from 7PM to 10PM to work on the layout and have Open Houses for the public on certain weekends. We have about 40 active and 60 associate members and new members are welcome.
