We are a group of railroad enthusiasts dedicated to the preservation of Florida’s railroad history. Our Articles of Incorporation state: Membership is open to all persons of good reputation having reached the age of eighteen (18) years who own, are constructing, or intend to construct live steam boilers and/or engines of any type and/or large scale non-steam railroad locomotives or equipment, or who have expressed serious interest in such equipment. We also have “Apprentice” and “Junior” memberships for family members.
We have relocated our riding-scale railroad and our G gauge railroad to the Florida Agricultural Museum grounds. As of March 2020 we have approximately 2,500 feet of 7.5 inch gauge track on which to operate our rolling stock. Ultimately we will have 8,000 feet of track. The G gauge railroad is being rebuilt on a raised oval-shaped track.
Due to the corona virus threat we have suspended work days, although some members still come to work on the track laying activities in very small numbers in order to comply with social distancing. We hope to return to our regular Saturday morning work schedule and whenever special effort may be required.
Please visit when the virus threat has been lifted. Then come on out and join the fun! No experience is necessary as we enjoy sharing our knowledge with all interested persons. Click here for directions.
