Illinois - Prairie State Railroad Club
Big Rock, IL - The Prairie State Railroad Club is comprised of railroad enthusiasts who share a passion for the building and operation of large scale model railroad equipment. Model railroads come in many different scales (the relative size of the model compared to a full-size or prototype). Ours is 1:8 or 1-1/2″ scale, meaning that on average, the locomotives and other railroad cars are 1/8″ the size of the real thing. The gauge (distance between the rails) of our track is 7-1/2″ gauge, which makes it possible for the engineer to actually ride his train and perhaps even carry a few passengers.

It should be noted that the operation of these scale model trains is solely for the enjoyment of their owners and guests is not to be confused with miniature railroads that are sometimes found at amusement parks or zoos. The railroads at those venues are considerably larger and are designed specifically to haul large numbers of passengers. For that reason the club does not accommodate the general public with the exception of a few events that are conducted under the auspices of other organizations.

Indiana - Pine Creek & Western Railroad Club
Pine Creek Valley, IN - The Pine Creek & Western Railroad is located at the Illiana Antique Power Association show grounds. The railroad consists of over a half mile of aluminum track. Several grades of approximately 3% offer challenges when pulling long trains. Approximately half of the railroad passes through forested areas of mature trees. A railroad yard with over 200 feet of storage is available for trains. The unloading facilities provide for convenient unloading and loading of equipment. The unloading table is capable of accommodating very low loads, (16 inches) and can unload equipment from heights of 48". The unit can handle equipment weighing up to 4000 lb. The equipment is then transferred to a turn table where the engineer chooses going to one of the five steaming/service bays or going down to the main or yard.
