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.

The CCMRC is welcoming new members.

Open House & Membership

Thanks to everyone that came out to visit us during our holiday open house season. It was a great success and we were happy to have so many visitors and kind words about the layout, models and scenery. We really enjoy showing off our house to visitors. If anyone that came to visit is interested in becoming a full time member, we are accepting new members and would be glad to have you join us to help make the Crescent Lines even better.
