El cars, C-types, and Q-Types on the El. As well as 8000's, 6000's, a PCC and convertible type cars on the street. Click on the pictures and come along for the ride!

A note from members Nate Gerstein and Steve Olsen--
We have been in this hobby of O-Scale subway and elevated modeling for over forty years. When we started, nothing was available. In 1955, Bill Clouser was commissioned to build two types of subway cars for the St. Louis Car Co. One was the R-17 and the other the H&M (PATH) Class K car. Seeing those models and befriending Vern Gillman, who built superb Manhattan El and subway cars, gave us both the inspiration to build our own.

At that time, we could only build our cars from scratch, from whatever materials were available. Now in the new millennium, we are at the height of popularity and availability of rapid transit equipment. Trolley cars, buses, and subway trains are available from small model companies and importers. Now a new aspect of the hobby is upon us! "Tinplate" or "high-rail" 3-rail cars are now fast becoming popular. This opens a new avenue of subway car modeling. "MTH" and "Lionel" are producing subway car models for New York City Transit and Chicago Transit fans.

How exciting! The O-Scale people have inexpensive cars to convert to run 2-rail (or outside third rail) or kitbash them into other models. The "tinplate" people have ready to run cars, which can be run on any "Lionel" type layout. Last, but not least, the new-comer can acquire and set up his empire in one night! The computers and digital equipment sold today will further enable us to equip our models to have sound, video, make station stops, and change directions. We can go as far as we like!

Check out the websites, catalogs, and magazines. Attend the model shows. GET INSPIRED, Bring your models to shows - to run on the layouts and enter model contests! It's a fun way to pass leisure time.
