Welcome to the Cincinnati Northern Model Railroad Club website.
The origins of the prototype Cincinnati Northern Railroad can be traced back to the 1880s and the Cincinnati, Jackson & Mackinaw RR. The CNRR ran from Franklin, Ohio, to Jackson, Michigan, with headquarters in Van Wert, Ohio. By 1902 it was controlled by the CCC&StL (Big Four) railroad, a subsidiary of the New York Central.
The Cincinnati Northern Model Railroad Club is building and operating a two-level HO scale layout that models the Cincinnati Northern from Franklin to Van Wert as though it had remained an independent railroad in the 1950s. We also operate a 10′ x 17′ prize-winning sectional layout that we exhibit at local and national train shows.
The Cincinnati Northern Model RR Club meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the Ross Local School District administration building near Hamilton, Ohio. Visitors are welcome on the third Tuesday of each month. Please contact our President, George Roos at (513) 931-7314 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and directions to the club.
