Have fun in all aspects of the hobby!
Something For Everyone

Maybe you're new in town, looking for a train club to check out and join; visiting Charleston; here for a cruise or a snooze; in town for work and looking for something to do; a mom with kiddos; parents with kids; grandparents with grandkids; or just someone who has an interest in the miniature world of trains.  We have three big operating layouts in N, HO, and O scales, and a railroad play table with Thomas for the littles.  There's cities to see, farms to gaze, go exploring, find coal mines, waterfalls, critters, history, and more. No matter who you are, we're glad to have you stop in. 

There's definitely 'something for everyone' to see and do.

CAMRC
Train Shows

Paused due to COVID

 

Unfortunately, due to circumstances completely out of our control, we are forced to cancel last years CAMRC Trainshows.   We are as disappointed as we know you are too.   We deeply apologize for any inconvenience and trouble this may have caused our vendors and general attendees.  Please come back soon for announcement dates and location for our future CAMRC Trainshows.

Donations

Any and all donations, both monetary,  and model railroad items, are very much appreciated. Donations help our club survive and help us continue to spread the word about the model railroading hobby. As always, all donations are tax decutable, as we are a 501(c)3 organization.

Thank you for your support!

Use this button for donations only.

Members please use the membership page.

Buying & Selling Trains

As a 501(c)3 organization, we rely on member dues and outside contributions to sustain our organization.  As a club operating scale model layouts for the public, we are not staffed nor able to buy & sell trains.  There are several outlets in the area, and we encourage supporting them when shopping for a trainset.

Thank you for your understanding!
