Southern New England
Model Railroad Club

SNE Overview

The railroad is a fictitious line named after the ill-fated Southern New England RR (referred to as the "Titanic Railroad"), running loosely from eastern Pennsylvania to Massachusetts and Rhode Island. A double track main line accommodates through trains and generates freight traffic from many online industries. Locomotives are serviced and trains are switched in the "Roland Roberts" main yard and then dispersed to other locations throughout the rail system. The state of the art design provides a linear walk-around model railroad using the "mushroom" techniques to greatly increase running length (850'). There are some duck unders and stairs as you follow your trains around the layout.
Not Handicap accessible.
