Our History

The Nauset Model Railroad Club was formed in December of 1989 by Max Sarazin and a group of train enthusiasts who responded to his effort to start a model railroad club in the Orleans area. Their common interest was railroading and model railroading in particular.  Today's members are a mix of very active collectors with train layouts, and others who just enjoy talking and learning about trains.


The club, a non-profit organization, has grown steadily and today has over 70 active members. Club members get together Friday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. to work on and operate train layouts, build models, watch videos, have clinics on some railroad topic, or just plain talk.  The first Friday of each month (September through June) is our business meeting. 


For many years the club has sponsored seasonal Open House events to increase interest in model railroading and answer questions from visitors who would like to become more involved in the hobby. Above all, it provides enjoyment to those of all ages who come just to watch the trains operate.  Your membership helps the club continue with its goal of promoting the hobby and providing hours of relaxation and enjoyment to anyone who loves trains.
