Location

This area of upstate New York is in the heart of farm country.  Many of our neighbors are Menonite or Amish farmers.  Don't be surprised if you encounter a horse and buggy as you drive around the roads in this area.  Our club sits on twelve acres of what was once a corn field.  We have been planting trees and letting parts of the property go wild since the club bought the land in 1969.

Facilities

The clubhouse was designed by member Ken Parkinson to look like an oldtime railroad station. Constructed by club members, under the leadership of Joe Dwyer, it houses a meeting room, kitchen, library, workshop, and restrooms.
The club's monthly business meetings are held in this facility.
The reference library is housed in new shelves built by Dick Donovan in 2012.

The machine shop features a Logan lathe and a Vertical column milling machine.

The 7-1/4" gauge engine house was designed by member Alan Francis and constructed mostly by club members. Each bay has two levels on each side. The trains are moved in and out, on a transfer table that rolls across the front of the engine house.
The unloading facility is a turntable mounted on a hydraulic lift, that is capable of raising to the height of anyone's trailer or truck bed.

The 7-1/4" gauge car barn is located between the engine house and the road. It is serviced by a pair of 3-way switches that connect to the mainline.
There is a siding next to the car barn on the road side for loading the ballast car with crushed stone.

The 4-3/4" gauge engine house was designed by Steve Pontarelli and constructed by club members. There is a powered transfer table that connects shelves in the engine house with the 4-3/4" gauge turntable.
The unloading facility is a hydraulic lift, that is capable of raising to the height of anyone's trailer or truck bed.

The newest addition to the club is the gauge 1 storage building completed in 2012.

We have two containers that are used to house the tractor and other grounds and maintenance equipment.

The pump house stands over the well inside the inner loop of 7-1/4" track. The water is not potable and is used for the toilets and washing. We have a separate storage tank for engine water which conyains "shipped-in" city water.
