Arizona and Southwest Model Railroad Society

Welcome to the Arizona and Southwest Model Railroad Society. We are a friendly Tucson, Arizona based club enjoying N scale model railroading using N-Trak/NRail standards. We are adding TTrak modules (smaller than NTrak to the club.  If you have an interest in model railroading, visit us Wednesdays at our Green Valley layout, chat with us at one of the shows or contact us at We welcome visitors no matter what age.  We are a low cost, low pressure club and new members are welcomed. Our large layout allows us to run long (almost prototypical) trains on a nicely detailed layout.

Arizona has a long railroad history with many local railroads. Southern Pacific had a large yard here in Tucson, parts now operated by Union Pacific.

Here are a few photos of the real thing:
