to Elmhurst Model Railroad Club, home of the Illinois Western Railroad.
We have both HO,HOn3 and N scale layouts depicting a nostalgic look at life as it
was in the Midwest in the 40's, 50's and 60's.
Scenes vary from rolling hillsides and farms to a large steel mill. You
can also experience real life railroading right outside our front door.
We are located just west of the former Chicago and Northwestern Proviso
yard, now UP's busiest mainline track. Trains pass by at about 20 minute
intervals. You can safely watch trains both day and night.

In addition, we regularly have activities like club picnics, auctions, parties,
slide shows, movie nights, video nights, visits to and from other model
railroad clubs and fan trips.
