Metrowest Model Railroad Society runs two rail O scale (1/48) passenger and freight trains on a forty by sixteen foot sectional layout. There are two mainline loops, one is powered with direct current (DC) and the other is powered by digital command control (DCC). Scenery varies from rural to industrial settings and motive power includes diesel and steam locomotives from local roads like Boston & Maine, Maine Central, New York Central and New Haven. The club meets once a month, displays at several shows and puts on their own show every April/May. We invite all that have an interest in O scale to join the club.

And Your Host --

NMRA HUB Division HO Scale www.hubdiv.org

The Hub Division is sponsoring this show and will also have a large modular railroad of its own. The railroad operates using Digital Command Control (DCC). With DCC, trains operate on low voltage AC power instead of the traditional DC power.  Each train engine has a small computer chip installed, and computer instructions are sent to the locomotives through the electric pulses transmitted through the rails. Each engine only responds to it's instructions, so that all trains are independently controlled without the need for traditional DC blocks and cab control.
