Standard  "O"

Lionel Post War Collection

18' X 20' Scenery: 0% ZW


This fabulous collation of post War Lionel roll stock.  If you had a Lionel layout when you were young I am sure you can find that engine you had on your layout.  Hundreds of rolling stock with no two the same. It’s not N scale but something you need to see.


HO HOn3 N Scale

Elmhurst Model Railroad Club

  Scenery: 80% DC DCC


The Elmhurst Model Railroad Club, home of the Illinois Western Railroad. We have both HO,HOn3 and N scale layouts depicting a nostalgic look at life as it was in the Midwest in the 40's, 50's and 60's.

Scenes vary from rolling hillsides and farms to a large steel mill. You can also experience real life railroading right outside our front door.


Layouts are only a part of the club's total picture. Our club constitution states:

"The purpose of the club shall be to encourage the building and operating of model railroad layouts for members use and for exhibition. A secondary purpose shall be to encourage friendship and to promote the hobby of model railroading."
