Visitors welcome at North Florida Model Railroad Club

Press release from North Florida Model Railroad Club

Alachua now has a computer controlled model railroad! The North Florida Model Railroad Club located in Alachua is inviting all train lovers to come see our latest model railroad. This HO scale layout features fully automated train operations controlled by a computer using special traffic control software. See 10 trains run across bridges and trestles as they wind through tunnels and over high mountain passes.

Learn about the technology behind its design and construction. The track layout, created using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, contains over 350 feet of track spanning three levels. Hidden levels store trains for random arrivals and departures. Computers automatically control train speeds, sounds, and routes using a Digital Command Control (DCC) system.

We look forward to informing the Alachua community about this new layout and encourage those interested to come and see it. Visits (*) are welcome by appointment. Please email for appointments, directions, and additional information: stevem122.miller@gmail.com
