Olympic Model Railroad Society




This layout depicting Pacific Northwest railroading from the mid-1950s to the present has been evolving for more than 28 years, and has three levels which include a lower hidden staging yard of 10 tracks,  middle and upper levels connected by dual helixes and feature 5.5 scale miles of double track mainline. Scenes include a mining operation, a lumber mill, rural countryside, a cityscape (inspired by Tacoma, WA) with a grain export terminal, a large union passenger station depot and an 11 stall roundhouse with 130 turntable. Smaller towns are inspired by Steilacoom, Winlock and Olympia.

The OMRS was featured in the December 2013 issue of Trackside Model Railroading electronic magazine.
