Patcong Valley Model Railroaders  

 

 The Patcong Valley Railroad has begun completion of one of the last large areas of scenery in 2014.
A Large City scene is under construction now and progress will be visible at this years open house shows.
The streets have been laid out and authentic scale trolley track has been laid in the streets. Tracks have been re alligned and a new tunnel runs under the city.
Small towns including a fishing village will skirt the city along with a baseball field and a beach scene complete with amusements and a lighthouse.

Thanks to the dedicated members that brought you the Old Patcong Valley layout on Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township NJ, and some new talented members as well; our new layout has been running September 2007. In December 2008 much planning  took place and over the last 6-7 years the scenery has progressed and the layout of the final section of the is nearing scenery completion. The previous last area to be constructed included a mountain/mine area and a harbor wharf area, with a city nearby. Work is underway as we progress with the track and layout construction in stages thru the final section.

Keep an eye on this page for picture updates....Last update was April 2014.
Membership is limited at this time but we are always interested in hearing from scale modelers interested in joining a Scale Model Railroad club on the move into 2015....

 

An old Caboose has been placed in the Park next to our club in Richland on Rt. 40.
In the summer of of 2014 it was repainted and more restoration work is ongoing by the township volunteers.
In the summer of 2007, another caboose was placed next to our building in our parking lot. We have the real thing and the scale thing!
Buena Vista Township has finished the Visitors Center which occupies part of the building our layout is located in. The room is a very accurate rendition of an old time railroad station waiting room with a ticket booth and other period items along with train related memorabilia. Great job Chuck !
