CRM&HA's mission is to promote understanding and enjoyment of railroad heritage in America, particularly in the Carolinas. We maintain a 12 ft x 24 ft modular HO scale layout which is exhibited at several events per year, host an annual 2-day train show in Upstate South Carolina, and are in the process creating a model railroad museum in Central. The museum includes a large dual-level HO layout, a "heritage" layout in classic toy train scales, and a Lionel layout is under development. A garden layout is planned. Our annual train show is held each year in February.
The purpose of the Piedmont 'N Southern Model Railroad Club is to promote the hobby of model railroading through creation of an operating modular N-scale model railroad layout built to Ntrak and/or Bend Track standards. This layout is intended to be displayed to the general public.
The Carolina Railroad Heritage Association, Inc. is a railroad oriented organization which is “Preserving the Past, Active in the Present, and Planning for the Future” of railroads in the Upstate.
The Hub City Railroad Museum and the restored 1947 Southern Railway Caboose #X3115, located in Spartanburg, SC at the Magnolia Amtrak Station, 298 Magnolia Street, are two public attractions the organization is involved in.
Museum complex hours are 10 am to 2 pm on Wednesday and Saturday.
Contact Information for the museum is 864-963-4739 during normal business hours.
There are regularly scheduled monthly meetings on the third Friday of each month. The meetings are held at 721 East Poinsett Street, Greer, SC 29651. The meeting site is across the tracks from the new State of South Carolina Inland Port facility.

We have a new club in the Piedmont area. Station 187 are a group of train enthusiasts with a passion for model trains. They are looking for members who share their passion in 1:87 (HO) model building, as all other scales of modeling. All ages and genders are welcome to join. You don't need to be a train enthusiast because at Station 187 it is not all about trains. If you are interested, please feel free to contact them for more information. You are welcome to take a tour around their web site, www.station187.net They meet weekly in the Gateway Business Park, on Hwy 101, across the street from the BMW truck entrance.
