In 1982 a small group of model railroad hobby enthusiasts joined together to form the
Winchester Model Railroad Club. Their goal was to mutually pursue what would
become referred to as the "Greatest Hobby in the World".
This website contains a brief history of what that 35 year pursuit has accomplished,
from its original formation to the building of its current layout today, and to invite
any of you … from the die-hard model railroad hobbyist who has been unaware of the
Club's existence to the eager amateur that might just be thinking of constructing
your first layout … to come and join us!!
