Welcome to the WBMRA Network!

PLEASE NOTE: We are not currently holding regular open houses due to the fact that we're building a new layout and have only just begun laying track and building scenery.  We hope to have trains running by summer 2015, but please feel free to visit before then to see our progress.

If you have any interest in helping to build a model railroad from the ground up, regardless of your skill level in the hobby, please considering joining the fun - we're always looking for new members! The club currently meets most Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons to plan and work on the layout, and prospective members are encouraged to join us during our regular business meetings, which occur at 8pm the thirs Wednesday of each month. We hope to see you at the club!
