The Garrett Model Railroad Club The Greater Midcontinent Railroad Company, also known as the Garrett Model Railroad Club, was founded in 1991. The HO scale model railroad layout occupies approximately 20 by 30 feet of the basement of the Garrett Historical Society Museum. The layout has about 7 scale miles of track, which typically takes 20 minutes for a train to complete a run around. Prototypical operations are duplicated with the aid of a computerized system which controls the layout. There are currently 21 members who meet on Thursday nights to work on the layout, operate trains, and discuss model railroading and railfanning.
