Model Railroads
Managed By: Icon Here Model RR Mangers
Description:
The Model Railroads category is a collection of locations where you can enjoy permanent model layouts. These layouts must be accessible to the public. The category focuses on G scale layouts and smaller.
Expanded Description:
Model railroading (US) or Railway modelling (UK and Australia) is a hobby in which rail transport systems are modeled at a reduced scale, or ratio. The scale models include rail vehicles (locomotives, rolling stock, streetcars, etc.), tracks, signalling, and scenery (roads, buildings, vehicles, model figures, lights, and natural features such as streams, hills, canyons, etc.).(Courtesy of Wikipedia)

This category is to waymark model train layouts (small or large) that are on permanent display.

Does your favorite hobby store have a train display in G scale running the perimeter of the store? Waymark it. Does a local railroad club have a visitors night where their permanent layout can be viewed? Waymark it. From G scale to ZZ Scale they are waymarkable here.

Trains that are ridable (live steam) are larger than G scale and should be waymarked in the Miniature Railroads category.

Resources:

Trains.com has a searchable reference to many Model Railroad Groups around the world.

Scale Reference Guide

Instructions for Posting a Model Railroads Waymark:

Exclusions: Ridable miniature trains, toy trains without tracks, or non-operating trains on display will not be accepted.
