RVMRC Banner

The Rogue Valley Model Railroad Club is located at the Railroad Park in Medford, OR.  <Map to RVMRC Layout>  Originally the club featured a portable, modular layout seen at shows from Dunsmuir CA to Eugene, Medford and Klamath Falls, OR.  Since 2003 we've been at work on a permanent layout depicting the Pacific & Eastern Railroad between Medford and Klamath Falls. 

We invite you to visit us when you're in the Medford area and  join our club if you'd like to get involved.  

Our public run days are the second and fourth Sundays of the months from April through October from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  Admission is FREE; donations are welcome. 

Regular meetings include a board meeting on the second Wednesday of the month and a general membership meeting on the fourth Wednesday.  These meetings start at 7:00 PM and are open to the public.

Regular work days are Saturdays from 10:00 AM until mid-afternoon. 

<<<NEW>>> Regular Operating Sessions have resumed! They're on the second Saturday of the month starting at 10:00 AM and lasting until... If you're experienced in prototype operating sessions, you're welcome to come join us as an operator. If you're new to operations, come join us as the engineer on a crew with an experienced conductor and learn how railroads operate -- it's not just trains running around in circles. And, if you just want to watch the fun, please drop on by.

Other days of the week often find members working on projects.  If there's any of our members at the clubhouse, knock on the door and we'll give you a tour.

P&E Lines 1905 - 1964    
Follow the short life of the real Pacific & Eastern, it's demise during the Great Depression and rebirth as a logging railroad.
Our Story
What might have happened had the Great Northern pumped more money into it. How we are building this "what if" railroad in HO scale and how it might have ran in 1989. 
Building the P&E
From Benchwork to Scenery; a chronicle of the construction of a large model railroad. Featuring sections on how each major scene came together.
Operations circa 1989

1989 -- the last full year of operation of the Medford Corporation -- boom times for timber in the Rogue Valley. A trip over the railroad; everything you need to know to run the P&E.
  <<<NEW>>> In January, 2010 the club inherited Rusty's Rivetless Railroad. While it was not possible to move the entire layout, the rolling stock, most of the structures and a few of the scenes have been preserved.
Modular Layout

The Modular Layout is alive and well, although out of sight to visitors at the Railroad Park.  It will continue to be set up at the Annual Rogue Valley Railroad Show on Thanksgiving weekend and in Klamath Falls once or twice a year.
