Ford Model Railroad Club
The Ford Model Railroad Club started in 1995 with a small number of employees at the EEE Building and has grown to over 40 members. Now it includes retirees and non Ford Employees also. We meet every Third Tuesday of each month at Ford World Headquarters to talk model trains, learn modeling skills, discuss our next train show and many other things. Please come and join us. Please check our website and blog for more information. (Ford Model Railroad Club)(Lisa's Ford Model Railroad Club Blog) The club also has an award winning modular railroad comprising of both HO and O scale tracks ( 2 mainlines each). Check out some photos of all our fun.

This is a general overview of the track plan. It shows the 2 mainlines of O Scale and the 2 mainlines of HO Scale and how they cross in the corners. You only see one scale at a time as the other would be on the inside.
This is an early view the layout.
