ABOUT OUR CLUB
The Maumee Valley Railroad Club, founded in the early 1990s, is dedicated to promoting model railroading. Initially, the club’s activities included displaying at the South Town Mall and participating in various events like the bi-annual swap meet and the Great American Train Show.
Currently, we are constructing a new modular HO gauge model train layout with innovative features. This includes Digital Command Control for independent engine operation, a single track mainlines for realistic train movements, high-quality construction, computer interface capabilities, and simulated operations for an engaging, game-like experience.
ROUTINE THINGS OUR CLUB DOES

We host our show and swap twice a year for everyone in the tri state area to enjoy! Everything ranging from N to O gauge, including hot wheels and other railroad memorabilia!
We host business meetings at least once a month, work sessions once or twice a week and annual meeting once a year.
