"It means more to me to be on the cover of Model Railroader than to be on the cover of a music magazine.">
Model railroaing is a hobby the whole family can enjoy. You can wear many hats and learn many skills. Model railroads includes something for everyone. What other hobby allows you to plan, paint, scenerize, build models, learn electrical, learn railroad operations and most of all...share it all with others?
Welcome to our new website.... The Gold Coast Model Railroad Club just celebrated 25 years (1987-2012) of operation. We have a large, 1800 square foot main layout permanently housed at Murphy Automobile Museum in Oxnard, California. We also have a 12 module portable traveling layout that is seen by thousands every year at the Ventura County Fair, the Railfest in Fillmore, CA every March and and at National Train Day in Santa Barbara every May.
Our members range in age from 15 to 70 years old. We have some of the most talented members in the county, working and sharing their knowledge every week at our work and run sessions. Go to the Directions page for directions to our club. Our Calendar page will keep you current with what we are doing, our meetings, events, run nights and work nights.
