Welcome to the Big Train Operator Club

"Havin' Fun Runnin' Trains"

Whether you are a garden railroader, modeler, collector, G-scale fan or just a Big Train lover, you are invited to join the Big Train Operator Club. Inc. 

The club is a group of enthusiasts, hobbyists, and collectors who devote much of their time and energy to Large-Scale trains. The club was founded in 1978 (formerly the LGB Model Railroad Club or LGBMRRC) and now has members throughout the United States and in several countries.

There's something about the sound of a train that's very romantic and nostalgic and hopeful. - Paul Simon
