About Model Engineers RR Club of NJ

Originally founded in Paterson in 1934, the club moved to their current location in High Mountain Road in North Haledon in 1954. The railroad is a point to point operation with yards at each end of the railroad. There is about 3000 feet of hand laid track on three different levels. The layout is loosely based on areas and locations in North Jersey. This final weekend will feature a steam only weekend. All trains will operate steam engines and will fit a prototype matching with the first half of the 20th century.

As friends to the MERCNJ, the New York Society of Model Engineers is sad to see the closing of such a great organization. However, many of the members of this group have been welcomed into our organization and their expertise in the hobby will be a valued addition. Please take an chance and see this group for the last time this weekend.
