Will you be having a show at Armory Park in North Charleston this fall? If so, what dates. Thank you ๐Ÿš‰
My son Ben Maiden and his friend Jared Shafto enjoyed sitting in one of the "speeders" on display from South Carolina Railroad Museum at the 2019 Spring Train Show today.
I found a box of random S gauge cars, parts, and accessories. It's not exactly a gold mine, but I hate throwing anything away that may be useful to someone. Any takers? Happy to drop off somewhere. Thanks!
I am coming down to Charlston,SC in March on vacation. I belong to (2) different clubs in Kansas City - Brush Creek & Western and Kansas City Eastern (also known as the Jackson County Model Railroaders). I am hoping to do some visiting or hopefully get involved wit a ops session. I have a all kinds of video information available about the 2 clubs on Dale Shipman Trians. com ( u-tube) Please let me know. [email protected]
Love for you guys to bring a display to the hot air affair May 3 4 5 2019

Is there a fall show this year?
The Club's O Gauge Layout is getting a facelift. Well, actually it's more like reconstructive surgery. The 1st 40 feet of the O gauge display has been removed to make way for the new modules and track plan. We start the construction off-site on August 5th but should be back in the Club's Showroom by mid-August with an operational new layout design. Stop by and watch it evolve.
I enjoyed spending a bit of time with y 'all today. I hope to get back soon.
CAMRC's own Drew Seay and Matt Williams got creative and produced this nice tribute to our American heroes. The Freedom Train rolls out for Memorial Day, May 28, 2018 at CAMRC, in remembrance of all those who gave their all for every American. Those men and women will never be forgotten! Please share with all your friends and family.
CAMRC clubroom will be open for special Memorial Day hours, Monday 5/28 1:00pm - 5:00pm, at the Citadel Mall just outside Dillardโ€™s. We will be operating our troup train in memory of all our fallen heroes who gave all in wartime.

Model Railroad Club with 4 running layouts. Free to the public Located in the Citadel Mall next to Dillards. Layouts include O-gauge, S-gauge, HO-scale and N-scale.

The Charleston Area Model Railroad Club is a small local club based in the Citadel Mall.

Here is a dedication video with Norfolk Southern Operation Lifesaver #9250 and a Norfolk Southern Heritage Unit #8114 pulling an Autorack and short Intermodal train.

Be Smart! Be Alert! Be Safe!

Railroad Safety Week Sept. 20-26.

Look for this train to be running at the club from now until the end of September!

08/26/2021

Never sit on train tracks. It is extremely dangerous and can turn deadly in an instant. Please don't take Prom, Senior, Engagement, Wedding, or any other kinds of pictures on the tracks. For starters, you are illegally on railroad property. Second, if an article of clothing were to get stuck and a fast moving freight or passenger train were to come through, your wonderful pictures just turned gruesome!

Video of "fatality" involving pedestrian struck by train.

Note this is Rated: G
No real life human was physically harmed in this video!

08/19/2020

With our doors closed to the public it has allowed us to do improvements to the show room which we wouldnโ€™t have been able to do while operating our normal schedule. Currently, our show room is getting a fresh coat of paint to freshen things up. Along with the repainting project the Ho scale layout is getting all new wiring to allow for smoother operations in the future.
We are still going to remain closed and ask for your understanding and patience. We hope everyone stays safe during the unprecedented times!

Take a look at this. Itโ€™s the future of Amtrakโ€™s High Speed Rail on the NEC between Washington D.C and Boston they are due to start revenue service in 2021.

They grow up so fast! Amtrakโ€™s new Acela fleet, set to enter service in 2021, continues its progression at Alstomโ€™s facility in Hornell, NY, and the first train, out of 28 trainsets, will be moving to Pueblo, CO in mid-February for further testing. This video shows off the new trains in action, highlighting the dynamic, sleek and modern exteriors that customers can expect to see along the Northeast Corridor. #Acela
