NSW Module
North Shore & Western Model RR Club
A 100% NMRA Club

The club's modular layout is HO scale and consists of two main lines, and a branch line. All three lines are electrically isolated from each other. We run DC on the outer main line, and DCC on the rest of the layout. We also have a large staging yard with a turn table that the crew uses to setup or remove trains. Our typical modular setup consists of 28 modules occupying an area about 45 feet long by 21 feet wide.


New members are welcome to join. See our NS&W HO Module Handbook for specific track, wiring and construction standards we use in constructing our modules. For more information please feel free to contact Jeff Jarr. We generally display our layout four times a modeling season. We will be displaying our HO scale modular layout on the following dates:
