Welcome to the Boulder Model Railroad Club!
Reserve December 14-15, 2013 for our annual Train Show
|The Boulder Model Railroad Club (BMRC) is the Premier Model Railroad Club for Boulder, Broomfield, Adams, Jefferson Counties and beyond in Colorado. The BMRC is about having fun with model railroading. The club is not focused around a club layout, which means it can - and must! - appeal to a variety of skills and interests. It has something for practically everyone, from the person who only sets up a train at Christmas, to the "tin plate" collector, to the high-tech DCC operator, to the "rivet counter," to the historian, to the diorama creator, or to the builder of a basement empire.|
Club meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM and visitors are always welcome. The meeting venue is the Tri-City Elks Lodge #2541.The Lodge is located at 525 Main Street in Louisville, in the "old part of town". The club attempts to organize an 'on your own' dinner before hand, beginning at 6:00 PM which many members enjoy attending. Consult our Current News page for up-to-date information.
|Each meeting consists of a brief general business session featuring news items, committee information and reports from special interest groups within the club. This is followed by a short break where members and guests socialize, vote in the monthly model contest and browse through our extensive libraries of books, videos and DVDs. Afterward is a presentation by a knowledgeable clinician on a modeling or prototype topic. Meetings usually finish no later than 9:00 PM, with refreshments and socializing available afterwards in an on-the-premises lounge.|
