About us

Who we are
The Burlington Model Railway Club (BMRC) includes men, women, and families from Burlington and the surrounding area who share the common interest of model railroading, in N scale, HO scale, and/or G scale.  Our skill levels vary from "beginner" to "expert."

Our goals:

* Promote model railroading as a hobby
* Improve the skills of our members
* Have fun building and running model trains
BMRC was established in the early 1980's as an HO scale modular club.  Currently, BMRC members own and operate model railways in three different scales. 

We're organized in three Divisions:  HO, with a large layout containing both new and established sections, and a Digitrax DCC control system.  The N Division is under active construction, and the G Division operates as an outdoor garden railway in the warmer months with both track power and battery powered rolling stock.  Many members bring their personally-owned equipment to operate on these layouts (check with the Division Superintendent for technical details) and many also have model railroad layouts in their homes or gardens, but you need not own model railway rolling stock to participate in the activities at BMRC.  New members are welcome!

When we meet
Club members meet weekly at the Burlington Model Railway Centre on various evenings for each division.  On occasion, we may meet at members' homes for special projects.  Be sure to contact a Division Superintendent to confirm  meeting times and locations if you are planning to attend.  Drop in for a visit!  Visitors are always welcome!
