Pasadena Model Railroad Club, Inc.
Welcomes you to the
Semisesquicentennial of the Sierra Pacific Lines

Thank you for visiting. Please tell your friends about us.


Please send questions and comments to Webmaster@pmrrc.org


The Pasadena Model Railroad Club operates the Sierra Pacific Lines, one of the largest HO Scale operating Model Railroads in the world covering almost 5000 square feet. The railroad has over 30,000 feet of hand laid steel rail. The 1700 foot single to four track mainline with ten cabs allows for operation of multiple 30+ foot trains (up to 60 cars long). Yard panels throughout the railroad allow for operation of another 15 to 20 trains.

Sierra Pacific Lines operates trains from all eras: steam, diesel and electric motive power, old and modern freight, classic passenger trains and Amtrak; with each train being prototypically accurate for that railroad and era. Breathtaking scenery, operating semaphore signals, and theatrical lighting all combine to make this Model Railroading as you always dreamed it could be - with the long train physics and vistas that just cannot be found on any other layout. Every locomotive is powered... and there's a reason for that. Power changes en route, helpers and multi-unit consists and DPU are not just for show - they are for physics. Come on by for the show of a lifetime.

We have also added Digital Command Control to our operations on the McSweeney ore branch, the Branch Line, and in the Zion Port facility.


Every Tuesday 7:30 - 10:00 (1st Tuesday of the month - Business Meeting, 2nd Operating) and every Saturday 1-5 (operating sessions on the second Saturday of the month).

Visitors are always welcome. We have both Regular and Associate Memberships available.
