About Us

The Cape Cod Model Railroad Club was founded in November 1968 by fifteen railroad enthusiasts from various towns on Cape Cod. The purpose of the club is to promote the greater fellowship of model railroading; To encourage and assist members in the design, construction and operation of model railroads by accepted standards of practice in the hobby, and to promote public interest in model railroading.
CCMRC Club House
Coupled to our club baggage car is Deleware & Hudson caboose #35932. The caboose is used for club activites, and serves as a meeting room for our monthly meetings.

Inside the baggage car is our HO Scale layout, the "Cape Cod Central," designed to simulate the Old Colony Division of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad between Boston and Hyannis. There is over 1,000 feet of track, and over 75 turnouts on the layout. The structures are a combination of pre-assembled, scratch-built, kit-built and kit-bashed buildings constructed by members. The trains, including locomotives, are all privately owned by club members.
Our club is housed in a baggage car and caboose on Cape Cod, Mass. The baggage car was originally built for the New Haven Railroad as a horse and carriage car in 1905 by Bradley & Sons. It was later converted to a baggage car, sometime between 1927 and 1930. It was purchased by the Club in 1969 from the Penn Central Railroad, and delivered to its current location in West Barnstable. The length of the car, over couplers, is 64 feet, 8 1/2 inches, and its' weight is 86,000 pounds. The car is maintained and renovated entirely by club membership
