Southwest Washington Model Railroader's Club

Upcoming Events!


The Southwest Washington Model Railroader's Clubhouse is located at 8100 East Mill Plain Boulevard in Vancouver, Washington in the structure located behind the Central Nazarene Church. Look for a yellow and white aluminum-sided building behind the main church structure. The club meets on Monday and Thursday evenings, and the public is welcome to drop by.

Meeting Schedule

  • The Clubhouse is generally open every Monday and Thursday night from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. All members and the general public are welcome in the Clubhouse at these times. The first Monday of every month is held as a Business Meeting/layout work night, and the final three to four Mondays of the month are typically used for train operation, member's home layout visitations, and prototypical train operations nights. Thursday nights have been recently designated as additional running nights.

  • An annual open house is held in October. During this open house, trains will be running and the layout is in display condition.

  • A prototypical operating session is held on the club layout once every month. Trains are operated following a schedule, and cars are made up into trains in the switching yards, and delivered to industries. These activities simulate the operations of a real railroad.
