Railroad Clubs in the Piedmont Division Area

Atlanta Interlocking Model Railroaders

We are an HO modular club. Founded in 2002, our members sought a club with high standards, a high level of member involvement, a minimum of rules, no dues and a dedication to exploring fully the modular model railroad concept.

Membership is kept small, no more than twelve currently. While not an open club, memberships do come open on occasion. Members must make available twelve feet of completed modules, and are expected to participate in all aspects of preparing a club layout for a show. Contact us if interested in membership (when available) or visiting during operating sessions.

The  Georgia Garden Railway Society was founded in 1991. Our foremost objective is to have fun with our  hobby. We are family oriented with men and women equally involved in club activities. We welcome everyone who shares our interests; members come from all over Georgia. Meetings are usually held on the  second Saturday of warm weather months at the home of a club member. There is usually a garden layout to see, a group discussion, trains running in the garden, and the joy of visiting with others interested in garden railroading. We welcome guests and new members! We set up our mobile layout at most area train shows! Contact: Web site:

Georgia Northwestern Model Railroad Club

We are a 100% NMRA Club serving NMRA members in Cobb, Bartow, Paulding and Cherokee Counties of Georgia. Our purpose is to educate, train and develop model railroaders so they can build layouts of their own. We welcome any NMRA member regardless of scale or gauge that wants to improve their skill level. We also provide beginner classes and hands-on construction/skill building events. Visitors may come to check us out once but will be required to join the NMRA to attend further events. A valid NMRA membership card is required for admission, and the meeting is free of charge.

Our meetings are on the third Thursday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. We meet in Cartersville at the Center Community Center at 682 Center Road, Cartersville, GA 30121. The meeting room is 2 miles from the Hwy 20 exit off I-75, the third Cartersville exit #290.

Northeast Georgia N Scale Model Railroad Club

We are an Athens/Atlanta area association of 20+ men and women who are interested in promoting N-Scale model railroading.  The club was formed in 2020 through the merger of two long-standing north Georgia N-scale modular clubs, Athens Bend Track and Metro Atlanta N-Scalers.  Our membership area includes Athens, Atlanta, and the surrounding regions.  We are an N scale modular railroad (Bend Track & NTrak) club with a Digitrax-controlled Bend Track modular layout that consists of more than 35 modules that assemble into a variety of layout shapes from 16′ x 35′ to 36′ x 54′ for display at regional train shows.  In addition, we have a 3200 sq. ft. fixed layout at our clubhouse that is assembled from NTrak modules and custom built sections, and includes many of our Bend Track modules when these are not on our trailer in preparation for shows.  The fixed layout includes extensive elevated mountain line trackage, a 5-module, 14 track, 16′ “Staging Yard”, and several smaller yards and industrial siding scattered about the layout.  The club hosts running sessions that are open to the public on the first Saturday of every month (unless a show interferes) at our clubhouse in Comer, GA (59 Watson Mill Road).  Visit our Club Facebook page ( to see pictures and videos from both our modular show layout and the fixed clubhouse layout.


If you have an interest in N scale model railroading, this Club is for you.  Our members bring extensive experience in every aspect of model railroading.  The club holds work sessions at our clubhouse every third Saturday.  Members freely offer their experience with various aspects of model railroading to anyone interested during the work sessions. 


Meetings are held at 7:30 PM on the fourth Tuesday of every third month by Zoom.  Contact the group through ( to receive notices of meetings and other club activities.

NorthWest Georgia (NWGA) T-Trak

T-Trak is a table top N scale modular railroad standard which has become very popular in the N-scale world.  The NWGA group was founded in 2007. We follow the original standards as published at 

We run Digitrax DCC, but have incorporated a DC loop into  layouts when needed.  The group has become mostly inactive due to old age and health issues, but members are still around.

North Atlanta O-Gauge Railroad Club

We are a 3-rail O-Scale club. Activities include running trains, building layouts, workshops and field trips. We meet monthly on the 3rd Saturday at the Kennesaw Hobbytown USA, where our 25′ x 12.5′ layout is in the entry lobby.

We take our traveling layout to most area train shows. There is nothing like watching the joy and fascination a child has when watching and running a train!




North Georgia Modurail

We’re Georgia’s oldest HO scale modular railroad club, chartered in 1993 and specializing in portable, modular railroad design and operations. If you like to run trains but don’t have the room for a layout, or want to learn more about model railroading and need a good way to practice new skills, or you’re a seasoned veteran wanting to run longer trains and mentor others, then modular model railroading may be just right for you!

Modelers of all ages and experience are welcome, and you’re sure to see great trains from old steam to modern diesel running through a wide variety of scenes and settings. Learn how to build your own personal module that combines with others to form a large layout – from design to construction to tracklaying to electronics to scenery to structure building and more. We operate about seven shows a year, and it’s never the same layout twice!

Monthly meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm (third Thursday in November) in the Roswell or Duluth areas. Come to a meeting or visit us at an upcoming show!



Southeastern Railway Museum - Atlanta National Railway Historical Society

Georgia’s Official Transportation History Museum and an operation of the Atlanta Chapter, National Railway Historical Society is located just north of the intersection of Buford Highway (US-23) and Pleasant Hill Road with both indoor and outdoor exhibits. Exhibits include freight and passenger cars, steam and diesel locomotives, prototype and scale model, operating and static. Open Chapter meetings with interesting presentations are held on the third Saturday of the month at 5:30PM. 

Volunteer to work at the museum – train crew, track maintenance, guide, equipment restoration!

No matter what your interest or skills, the Southeastern Railway Museum offers fulfilling opportunities to get involved. Our dedicated volunteers bring transportation history to life, helping visitors appreciate and understand the cultural, technical, and economic impact of transportation in our region – and they have fun doing it!

Railroad Model Club of Atlanta

Southern O Scalers has merged with Railroad Model Club of Atlanta (RMCA) and now is known as Railroad Model Club of Atlanta. We are temporarily operating our portable module layout and visiting home layouts on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 10 am and have business meetings on the 1st Monday at 7 pm of each month. We have relocated some of our permanent layout, large module layout, structures, motive power, and rolling stock to storage since we sold our downtown Atlanta building. We are building a 7200 square foot building in Ball Ground GA that is scheduled to be completed by Christmas 2024.
Our club has recently celebrated its 87th birthday and is the oldest model railroad club in Atlanta.
