Model Railroading in Atlanta

The hobby of Model Railroading is thriving in Atlanta. The Piedmont Division of the National Model Railroad Association is leading the way in promoting the hobby and educating people on the many aspects of the hobby.  See a video about the Piedmont Division and find out how we share the hobby in Atlanta.

You can learn the basic how-to's of model railroading at the NMRA Beginner's Guide.  The Piedmont Division's monthly meetings on the 2nd Tuesday provide educational programs on a variety of subjects. We also host "Train'n Camps" to give hands on opportunities to learn about the hobby.

You can see our member's model railroads online and in person thru our Piedmont Pilgrimage event in October & November and our monthly layout tours. See a photo gallery of over 80 model railroads that are on tour in Atlanta. 

Contact our Director of Membership Howard Goodwin, MMR at for more information on the hobby and joining the NMRA and the Piedmont Division.
