Here is some of imagery from club members of their encounter with the UP 4014 as it made its way through West Wisconsin. More to come. Click the link at the beginning of the previous sentence or the image above.

Welcome to the West Wisconsin Railroad Club

What's that name again? Yes, we are now the West Wisconsin Railroad Club! For many years we were known as the Indianhead Model Railroad Club. The club has been reorganized which brings new opportunities. One of these is a "permanent" home, as permanent as life gets and as long as we pay the rent. We are building a permanent layout on which significant progress has been made. Our portable layouts are not going away. We still take them to shows and other venues. Bylaws have been written and adopted and we have been granted 501c3 status by the IRS so tax deductible donations may be made to the club.

What about membership? We are, of course, open to new members. For more information please go to our Membership page. Two levels of membership are available.

Western Wisconsin is home for us. We like to get together to talk trains, build models and layouts, run trains, go to trains shows, watch and photograph trains, ride trains and trolleys, read about railroad history and future developments and enjoy being together doing most anything train related.

Name that Structure Quiz

Pictures for the "Name that Structure" quiz are needed. Let's keep this to railroad structures located in the Indianhead area of Wisconsin as first choice and other Wisconsin railroad structures when we run out of them.

Submit your guess to the club webmaster. (See Contact Us for the email address.) Specify the location of the structure and the railroad that owns it, if known. Your guess and name (optional) will be listed here.
