The Peninsula Model Railroad Club (PMRRC), located in Newport News, VA. Was formed in the mid 1970's, in the back room of a local Hobby Shop. In 1978, we were fortunate to acquire space in the Lee Hall Depot. Right now, with the Lee Hall Depot under going renovation. We are in a temporary location which used to be a Public school. At the present, we are in the process of building a new layout. Some of the goals of the club are to promote the model railroad hobby while learning new techniques. The new layout is 16.5 feet by 22 feet, and represents the area extending for Newport News, VA to Richmond, VA., during the Steam to Diesel era of the late 50's to early 60's. When the Lee Hall Depot is ready for us to move back in. The layout we are building will be moved there. We also have two T-Trak layouts. One we keep one at the Club, and the other is our traveling layout for train shows and events. We welcome everyone, you're always welcome to come out and have fun with us anytime. For more information, please visit our web site as mentioned above. Thanks!

Meetings: The club is meeting on Tuesdays (6PM to 8PM), Thursdays (6PM to 8PM), and on Sundays (12 noon to 2PM). The business meetings are the first Thursday of each month.

We have open houses the first Saturday of every month and other special events (please see our website for more details about the open houses).

Phone: (800) 659-1727

About one third of our members prefer steam and our scenery is typical of Virginia and West Virginia mostly thru the 40's, 50's & 60's but there are some members who like to keep their buildings and equipment as modern as the prototype(s) they model. Most of our layouts are modular and take on new looks from time to time. Our November show will feature many of our layouts and several from other clubs in Virginia from the mountains to the sea. There may also be a layout from Maryland. One of our members has a circus layout that is most impressive.

Meetings: 7:30 p.m. first Wed. each month.
