Columbia River N Scale Club Modular Layout

Located in the level below our shop, The Columbia River N scale club is one of the premier N -Trak N scale clubs in the Northwest.  Their layout models the Columbia River Gorge where the BNSF has tracks on one side of the river and the UP on the other side.  The layout features excellent scenery, track work, uses Digitrax and is being set up to do signaling.

The club hosts Saturday open houses, clinics and operation sessions and tours can be scheduled during the week too.  You can view still images or watch the MRH Magazine video below.
