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.

Crescent City Model Railroad Club at the March 5, 2016 TCA Ponchatoula Train Show

CCMRC members promoted the club at the TCA Train Show in Ponchatoula this weekend and had a very successful day doing so. Thanks go out to Marvin, Chuck, Tommy, Jonathan, Maureen, Ken Mason, Ken Gaudet, LJ, Michael and Tom for coming and helping out. It was a great debut effort for our club at the show. We had some Crescent LInes equipment on display, video presentations from the club layout and some mini-clinics going on throughout the day. We had LOTS of positive feedback about what we had on display, our clinics and on our sign up sheet for people that are interested in our 60th anniversary club car. You can see photos from the train show on the club Facebook page and in the photo section of this website too.
