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.

Clinic and Operation Day
On Saturday, October 22, 2016, The Crescent City Model Railroad Club hosted it's first Lone Star Region, NMRA Division 2 clinic and operating session day. Basic Electrical and Electronics for Model Railroading and Wiring for DCC clinics were presented by Division 2 Director Rod Fredericks, and a Track Warrant Control (TWC) Operations Clinic was presented by Jonathan Esposito. Lunch was served featuring jambalaya, French bread, dessert and soft drinks or bottled water. In the afternoon we had a Track Warrant Control Operating Session to put in use and practice what we learned in the TWC clinic.
We had 17 attendees from the CCMRC and from the Midsouth Model Railroad Club and one new visitor who has now signed up to be a member of the CCMRC.
In all it was a fun day with good friends and good food. We learned some new things and got to operate the Crescent LInes. This is what model railroading and NMRA membership is all about.
