Love Model Trains? Join us for the fun!


Joining Queen City HiRailers

download the application and bring it to a meeting or send it to the address at the bottom the application.

We would like you to come to a couple of meetings, at least a couple of our work play evenings and work with us at a show if possible. This is to find out if in fact you will like the club and will like modular model railroading. That should not be hard as we are a fun group. Following this, our Bylaws require a vote by QCHR Members on new applicants into membership.


Our meetings are informal and include the following:

  • Club business
  • "How To" sessions
  • Helping someone with one of their modules
  • Work sessions
  • Visiting other layouts or collections.

Our meetings are normally held on the second Saturday of the month at 9:30 am. We meet at the Ross School Administration Building, but that can change upon membership approval. We start our meetings on time, and usually last between 60 and 90 minutes.

We occasionally arrive early and/or stay late to work on or play with trains.

Some expectations of you as a member:

  • Attend and participate at business meetings
  • Helping someone with one of their modules
  • Making a layover of scenery
  • Help to load and unload the trailer to go to a show
  • Helping to set up and take down a show
  • Bring trains to run on the layout at a show
  • Bring trains to play with at the club room
