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.

Check out this story about the Crescent Lines that is posted on the Hub Hobby Shop website. It was written by former member Mike Mule and Jeff Junker of Hub Hobby Shop. Much on the Crescent Lines has changed since then. Jeff says it was written about 2002. http://hubhobbyshop.com/ride-the-crescent-lines/
