Welcome to the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club (CGMRRC), one of the largest model railroad clubs in the Western United States. Founded in 1943, CGMRRC seeks to provide a home for the HO Scale model railroad community in the Greater Portland, OR area, as well as provide education to youth groups and others interested in railroads of all sizes.
We meet once a week (Tuesdays starting at 7:30pm) to work on the layout, handle club business, and (most importantly) have fun operating our trains. While the club’s layout is devoted exclusively to DCC HO Scale models, fans of all scales are welcome.
Join us in November for our open house - each Saturday and Sunday we open our doors from 10am to 5pm for seven hours of non-stop, all-out model railroading action. After more than 30 years, our annual open house has become a family-friendly tradition for kids of all ages. We hope to see you there!
