The Olde Newburgh Model Railroad Club
In 1942, the club's first meetings were held at various member's homes. The club's fist permanent home was in the Town of Newburgh's Recreation Department on Route 32. The club met there from 1979 until 1987, when it relocated to the Masonic Temple in the City of Newburgh. The next ten years saw the design and construction of the club's permanent HO scale layout nearly completed.
In December of 1998, the Masonic Temple was sold and the club moved to its current home in the Veteran's of Foreign Wars (VFW) Building on Oak Street in Walden, NY.
In 1979, the club began exhibiting its modular layouts at local area train shows, county fairs, malls and social functions. Since then more than 1 million people have viewed and enjoyed our layouts.
In December of 2014, the club expanded its floor space by acquiring a 14' x 12' meeting room adjacent to its main layout room along with some additional storage space. The club is considering a 3-rail O-gauge layout contingent upon obtaining enough "new" interested members. Please use the "contact us" page of this website to email us and indicate that you are interested in 3-rail O gauge. We will get back to you.
