We are the Upstate Model Railroaders. The club is located in the basement of Aimie's Dinner and a Movie located at 190 Glen Street in downtown Glens Falls NY. Please go to the front door and use the door to the basement on the right as you enter. There will be a sign in the window when the club is in session. All are invited. Learn more about the building and operation of a model railroad. Club activities include: Monthly business meetings, monthly open houses, weekly operating sessions every Wednesday evening from 7-10 PM, an annual railroad show in December, and field trips. You don't need to be talented in any area of model railroading since part of the club's purpose and function is to provide instruction in various modeling techniques.
Our Mission Statement
Our organization’s mission is to own, operate and maintain several model railroad layouts at our headquarters in the City of Glens Falls and to set up displays in the Glens Falls area and surrounding communities in Warren, Washington and SaratogaCounties. These layouts and displays will be used to educate the public at large and our members regarding the history of railroading in the United States, particularly in the Northeast, and the service and benefits railroads have provided to our economy from the early 1900's to present. We will also teach adults and children how to set up model train layouts and scenic dioramas depicting prototype railroad operations by inviting them to our open house events, by bringing modular railroad layouts to schools, civic events and celebrations, and by setting up train layouts for display at local malls. With the exception of our annual fundraising train show, all events put on by this organization are at no charge to the public.
