MODEL RAILROAD CLUBS OF THE WORLD
Club ID: 888
Mid Kansas Model Railroaders (MKMR) (6/29/2011) . . . . . . . . . . . . . Scales:HO,N
MKMR is primarily an HO modular club that offers a variety of activities for all railfans in the area. We have a modular HO layout set up in the McPherson Museums old Cedars facility along with an N-scale layout from our friends at KCMR. The Model Train Exhibit is open for the public every Saturday and Sunday from 1 - 5pm. There is a small admission fee and all proceeds go to the McPherson Museum. We also entertain our guests with train videos, a train cam, old photos and railroad artifacts from McPherson's railroad history, a Thomas layout for children to play with and more. MKMR members volunteer their time and resources every weekend to give McPherson residents and visitors a model train experience they will enjoy. The club is working with the McPherson museum, exclusively, to restore the Belli Bros. HO and N scale layouts, one of the largest model railroad displays in Kansas. Another ongoing project is discovering and researching McPherson's railroad history. MKMR meets weekly and has clinics and workshops with club modeling projects as well as museum projects. We also offer a rail video library and a rail reference library for members to enjoy and we welcome you to come in and join the fun.
Meetings: Every Saturday

Boothill Model Railroad Club (4/14/01) . . . . . . . . . . . . . Scales:HO, N
Dodge City, KS67801
The Boothill Model Railroad Club is over a quarter century old. We currently have three club layouts (2 HO scale, and 1 N scale). All are modular, and are taken to shows frequently. Our N-scale layout took 1st in show at the GATS show in Wichita a couple of years ago. We currently put on a show of our own in Dodge City, each November. A while back we discovered we had as many members in Garden City, KS., so we created a "Western Division" in Garden City. We now have two club buildings, and three of our own layouts up and running, as well as a fourth (N scale) privately owned. We are also planning a second show annually, this one in Garden City, starting in January of '99. We are always interested in having new clubs participate in our shows, as well as traveling to other club's events.
Meetings: Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm and Saturday afternoons at 1:00 pm in the Garden City location. Every second Saturday night of the month in the Dodge City location.

Cherry Valley Model Railroad Club (4/14/01) . . . . . . . . . . . . . Scales:HO, N
Our model railroad club has been in existence for over ten years. We have been in our new home in Cherryvale for over 5 years now. We are located in an ex-Santa Fe depot where the Santa Fe's Tulsan and Oil Flyer once roamed. The club has a double decker layout in HO and a single level layout in N scale. The time periods modeled are anywhere from steam to the modern equipment era. We also get to see at least one train a night during the meeting thanks to the South Kansas & Oklahoma RR, a shortline in the area. We also have another club in the passenger side of the depot that is a historical society, called the Heart of the Heartlands. Open house information: We have one open house every year in the month of May, usually during the 2nd or 3rd Saturday in May. Other open houses are held according to local events around Cherryvale. We have even had various schools visit the depot. Come down and see what we have to offer.
Meetings: Every Friday at 7pm in Cherryvale

Kansas Central Model Railroaders (KCMR) (4/26/2010) . . . . . . . . . . . . . Scales:HO, N
Club members come together during the week to run and work and for some camaraderie. We have two H.O. scale layouts. One at 313 N. Main above Aladdin Heating and Air and one in the Hutchinson Mall; and one N-scale. The club has an arrangement with the Hutchinson Mall for a space south of Sears. We hand out Operation Life Saver coloring books, have a video playing and have some railroad memorabilia to look at. The layout is aprox. 30’ x 16’ with 3 main lines in an oval, modular construction. There is one scene that is 1920ish at a small hamburger joint or it could be present day. We set a year of around 1950 to model. The club members dearly love to talk to the public about the hobby. Since we are out at the Mall we hold open house. When we have two consenting members to manage the space, we can open the space up to the public, our choice of hours.
Meetings: Work sessions and train operation on Saturdays, 1:00 – 3:00pm. and Monday night 7:00 – 9:00PM Business meeting the first Saturday of each month Meetings are at the Hutchinson Mall
