We have new donations of items and railroad pictures and several new display cases. Thanks to generous donations our collection of Post War (WWII) locomotives and rolling stock has recently grown. We have repaired the mostly Lionel (and a few American Flyer) locomotives. Bring your grandchildren to see the toys you played with at their age. Stop by during our hours of operation to view the changes. We are back to our normal hours of operation.
We have a brief video of the O Scale/Gauge Layout at our clubhouse. To view the video go to You Tube and search for "CWMRA Train Club." We plan to have videos of the HO and N Scale layouts and some of the railroad memorabilia at the club sometime this summer. Check back in several weeks for any new videos.
If you're traveling through Wyoming this summer and pass through Casper, consider visiting our clubhouse. If you're a model railroad enthusiast, you will enjoy the visit.
