The Model Railroad Club, Inc. was founded in 1949 by author and Master Model Railroader Paul Mallery. Today it is one of the largest model railroad clubs in North America and features HO scale and N scale layouts, as well as other model railroad and industrial exhibits.
Located in a mixed-use section of Lenape Park, Union Township, New Jersey, The Club is an activity of the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation. Our 11,000 square-foot facility, named after our founder, was designed, financed and built by the members of the Club and then donated to Union County. The Club’s arrangement with the county allows it to occupy the building in order to build and operate model railroads and related displays.
The Model Railroad Club, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is a registered charity in the State of New Jersey.
Our Saturday Open Houses have resumed! We are open to the public every Saturday between 1 and 4 PM.
