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.

New McNally Yard is Under Construction

The new McNally yard is finally under construction. Since the completion of the Natchez Industrial District a few months ago, construction on the new McNally yard has commenced and is making great progress. We hope to have a few pictures available to post here of the Natchez District and progress on New McNally yard soon.

Covid-19 puts Open House Shows on Hold for 2020

With the continuing Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic still going on it looks like the CCMRC will not be able to host any open house shows in 2020. Please check our Facebook page for the most up to the minute news in case anything changes or we are able to host any open house shows.


Follow this link to the Crescent City Model Railroad Club's You tube Channel. We are doing a virtual layout tour of the Crescent Lines entire layout and adding a different video highlighting a different section of the layout each week.

CCMRC Founding member Richard Boutall passes.

We are saddened today to learn about the passing of one of our founding members, Richard Boutall. Attached below is the notification.

Richard John Boutall died unexpectedly at his home on Monday, July 15, 2019. He was the son of the late John C. and Marilyn B. Boutall; brother of Katherine Boutall Hoffman (Eugene, III), William C. Boutall (Barrie), and Charles A. Boutall, II (Jeanne); and uncle of Kristen Porter (Monroe), Eugene Hoffman, IV (Edith), Karynne Richerand (Frank, II), Erika St. Pierre (Gregory), Patrick Boutall (Teresa), and Elizabeth Netzhammer (Karl). He is also survived by numerous grandnieces, grandnephews, uncles, cousins, and friends. Richard was born and raised in New Orleans. He was a graduate of St. Louis King of France, De La Salle High School and Tulane University, finishing with a degree from Tulane University School of Law. After graduation, he became a private practice attorney. He was a founding member of the Crescent City Model Railroad Club and a member of Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity. Richard was an avid history buff and collector, especially Bucktown history. He loved attending family gatherings so he could "rough house" with his nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial gathering at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd. in New Orleans, on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 from 12:30 PM until 2:30 PM.
