The Metro East Model Railroad Club Layout

The Metro East Model Railroad Club's HO scale layout is located in Glen Carbon, IL.
The layout is 18'6" wide by 27'6" long and has roughly 1000' of track on several levels.
It includes a freight yard, a passenger yard, and a staging yard. The upper level features
a depiction of the Glen Carbon area in the 1940's . The lower levels feature the club's fictitious 'Glen Carbon Central' Railroad, a large steel mill, and a coal mine. To find out more information about the 'Glen Carbon Central' visit the links in the menu (above).

The Club currently has several on-going projects designed to clean-up and upgrade their layout to complete its conversion to full DCC control and to improve its over-all operation. See our current and future project list at: our Project List.

The Metro East Model Railroad Club (MEMRC) holds regular business meetings in the Glen Carbon Library on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. In addition, work/play sessions are held every non-1st Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to stop by at any of these times as well as at one of our amazing open houses.
