The Crescent City Model Railroad Club (CCMRC) is home to one of the largest HO scale layouts in the Gulf South.  We are located in Metairie, Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans (aka the Crescent City).  We model a fictitious railroad, called the Crescent Lines, whose mainlines carry freight and passengers to and from the beautiful south.

National Train Day Open House is May 13 from 12 noon to 6 pm

Join us on Saturday May 13th from 12 noon until 6 pm for our National Train Day Open House with a tribute to the Evolution of the Iron Horse. See early steam locomotives on up to modern diesel locomotives running on the Crescent Lines.
We have also been expanding our staging so you can see what all the work we have been doing is all about.
We have a kids layout for children to run trains on and a Timesaver switching layout that you can test your switching skills on and operate the trains yourself.
We suggest bringing a step stool for small children to stand on.
