History of the Club


Founded in 1996 by 8 avid railroading fans, PWMRC has grown to over 60 members of all ages and from all walks of life. Together we share a common bond - the love of trains and the desire to share that love with the public.


Members created the original modules that still delight train enthusiasts young and old today. The modules have been added to over time by individual members.


In 2006 the club managed to acquire space in the Quantico Train Station and built a permanent layout there. Monthly open houses and special events throughout the year drew many spectators to downtown Quantico.


Club members have taken group rides on the Cass Scenic Railroad and on East Broadtop. We've held train oriented get-togethers and gone rail fanning together. Of course there are workshops, clinics, and operating sessions on member home layouts. We have even participated in local parades. And everyone is welcome to run trains on the modular layout at any of the shows we participate in.


Members are always willing to lend a helping hand to whoever needs help with their layout. From rock carving to painting to the unfortunate dismantling, members have pitched in to help each other.


Club members frequently hand-off their DCC Controller to let young engineers run their train. The excitement in those young faces is priceless.


Whether you like rail fanning current lines or rolling stock, prefer highly detailed modeling of historical scenes and lines, or to just run trains and let your imagination run wild, we have a member who is into that aspect of the hobby.
