Three clubs with five layouts. The Sacramento Model Railroad Historical Society has separate HO and HOn3 layouts and the Roseville Roundhouse Model RR Club operates both HO and N scale.
HO and N Roseville Roundhouse Model RR Club
30 X 17 Scenery: 70% MRC DCC Special adaptations for handicapped
The Roseville Roundhouse Model Railroad Club was founded in 1977 by a small group of modelers in the home town of Southern Pacific's Jennings Yard. Over time, the group moved to several locations before coming back to the Placer County Fairgrounds where they started. The HO layout is approximately 30x17 and is built in the shape of a "Z" for the membership to operate trains. The N scale layout is fully sceniced and is both DC and DCC by operating one mainline per control system. The club's Western Sierra Lines Railroad is freelanced on both layouts.
HO 26th Street Model Engineers Spokane Pullman and Southern Railway
30 X 50 Scenery: 95% NCE DCC Not handicapped accessible
The 26th Street Model Engineers have built their layout in the basement of charter member Keith Brownfield's home. The layout is freelanced, but scenes are modeled to depict the Pacific Northwest in the transition era. Subdivisions divide the railroad and each one has a unique theme that focuses on various industries. Scenery is mostly complete, and the club uses Railops to prototypically move freight cars.
HO Sacramento MRHS Sierra Central
40 X 60 Scenery: 80% Digitraxx DCC Special adaptations for handicapped
Since 1948, the Sacramento Model Railroad Historical Society has been the premier model railroad club in the Sacramento region. A new layout was started in 2002 to represent the Southern Pacific from Oakland Pier to Sacramento, and the Western Pacific from Sacramento to Keddie, CA. The society also has one of the largest HOn3 layouts in California featuring prototype scenes of the East Broad top, Colorado and Southern, and the SP narrow gauge. The standard gauge is Digitrax DCC interfaced with CMRI and Panel Pro. The club operates a prototype tri-color CTC signaling system featuring an original Western Pacific US&S Sacramento dispatching panel.
HOn3 Sacramento MRHS Sierra Central (NG)
14 X 35 Scenery: 66% DC Special adaptations for handicapped
The Sierra Central Narrow Gauge is a loop to loop railroad with several branches connecting lumber camps, mines, and oil fields to the mainline. The railroad's location is freelanced, but scenes are themed around prototypes such as the East Broad Top Orbisonia Shops, Southern Pacific Narrow Gauge Owenyo Transfer Trestle, and Westside Lumber Camp 7. With most scenes finished and detailed, the layout is in full operation. The main aisle of the layout is handicapped accessible. This is one of the largest HOn3 layouts in California.
