Orlando N-trak Club
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
How many ferroequinologists (students of trains) or train enthusiasts are out there reading or viewing Windermere Sun?
I remember when I was a kid, totally enthralled whenever my dad would take me onto the train station platform. That was one of my favorite things to do, getting on the train station platform to watch the trains come toward us. It wasn’t just because my father was a civil structural engineer who had experience in designing railroad train station or train tracks, but the fact that I was always amazed by the sound, the smoke, the distance such a monstrous vehicle
would possess or travel. Even if we weren’t going/traveling to anywhere else, my dad would purchase the “platform tickets” for us so we could go watch trains together.
The Orlando N-trak Club is a model railroad club currently located off of E. Colonial Dr. (Highway 50) on the East side of Orlando, FL (15232 Old Cheney Highway Orland, FL, 407-342-6144, contact Bill Sterner, email: [email protected]). The club was originally established in 1987 as a N-trak club, with layout being made up of modules owned by individual members of the club. In late 1990’s, club members were able to purchase a permanent building on the East side of Orlando, FL. Subsequently, the club transitioned from N-trak standard modules to a permanent N-scale layout, HO layout, and newer N-scale modules. In the club’s 30′ x 60′ train room, there is an N-scale traveling layout based off of the CSX-FEC line from Jacksonville, FL to Folkston, GA, in addition to two separate N-scale and HO scale layouts using Digitrax DCC. The club members have also been making regular appearances at the Deland Fairgrounds Train Show.
So, after covering the Maker Faire Orlando 2016, I naturally would like to share the video about Orlando N-trak Club, and more information about this club with our readers and viewers, below:
