Railroad Club of Union, New Jersey is a legend in the hobby and has provided over
50 years of innovation and enjoyment for its members and the public. The HO railroad
is probably the largest club layout in the country. When the expansions are completed,
the layout will be 70 x 140 feet with 500 locomotives! The current HO layout is
40 x 40 feet and is based on the railroads that served the industries and commuters
of New Jersey.
The main railroad is the Hudson, Delaware and Ohio. It interchanges with the Rahway
River Railroad and the Trenton Northern, an electric interurban line. The club
is located on land owned by the Union County Division of Parks and Recreation.
The building was constructed by club members and was given to the county in exchange
for permanent occupancy.
one of the hobby's pioneers, created the concept for the original club in his
basement where the club met until the land became available. Paul, a prolific
model railroad author, reminisces about the early days of the hobby and the club.
members will show you about Centralized Traffic Control, magnetic waybills, super
trees, floating turnout points and installing trolley wire.
This club is run like a business, with industrial quality components installed
throughout the layout. Reliability, prototypical operation and informality are
important to this Great Model Railroad!
