East Texas-Model Trains

East & North Central Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma are home to variety of model toy trains hobbyist.  They reach from Longview, South to Nacogdoches, West to Fort Worth, North to Arkansas - Oklahoma and East to Shreveport / Bossier City, LA.  Sometimes that reach goes beyond our East Texas area.

This web site is dedicated to those individuals who have model trains, layouts in progress or have one in operation, to groups and clubs that display trains at public events and to individuals and clubs that display and attend our cities Train Shows.  It must be said that in this hobby of model trains, "One’s layout is never finished and their favorite train is the next one they buy".

There’s lots of railroad history here in our areas and we want to focus on that history as well.  We attempt to provide a list of museums and excursion railroads that offer up a taste of railroad passenger travel prior to 1960.  Come, go with us as we explore the model trains of our region.

We make efforts to attend as many area train shows and events with our camera to bring you a flavor of the event through our You Tube Channel.  Be sure to check the channel, subscribe and offer a thumbs up if you like.
