Welcome to AMROC! And the world of model railroading in downtown Columbia, South Carolina. We are dedicated to the promotion and operation of Model Railroading.
We are open to the public any Thursday night from 7:30pm at no charge and have layouts in all the major scales: N, HO, Lionel O (with S) and an overhead G gauge.
We will often give a throttle to our guest, especially young engineers, to run one of our trains themselves. We also generally allow guests of all ages to bring and run their own equipment, whether it's a young fellow wanting to try his Thomas on the "big” layout, or a seasoned hobbyists trying out his newest masterpiece. If you have a train to try out, bring it down. If it doesn"t run right, often we can help you find the problem. We usually have members there who can answer many of your questions or offer suggestions about building your own empire.
PLEASE NOTE: The first Thursday of the month is our business meeting from 7:30pm to roughly 8:15pm. That will be boring so we do recommend a different night.
