 ETMRC Map and Directions

Make it a point to visit Commerce Texas and see a stunning model railroad layout!

The East Texas Model Railroad Club will be the high point of the trip. It is HO and it's wonderful!

HO scale standard gauge, dual gauge HOn3, narrow gauge HOn2. In front of the scale museum there is a little tri–gauge. Stunning, reliable track work, dazzling electronics, dispatch board with lights to show occupancy, signals, CVP controls, and sound.

Structures and scenery are outstanding, cityscapes, mountains, backdrops with easy curves. Downtown with believable skyscrapers and street cars.

In another room, LeRoy O. King's memorial trolley layout is alive and well. There is also a small N scale layout.

Located in the gymnasium next to the new Commerce fire and police station, entrance is at the rear of the gymnasium building. We have an open house during the Bois d'arc Bash, as well as the Cotton Belt Symposium.

Ron Lafever, a former club member, wrote a book "Tuning for Beginners — Building the Lafever Climax". The club has been given permission to make the book available through this website. See "Climax Book" in the "Navigate" sidebar under "Other".
