About Us

The Texas Western Model Railroad Club (TWMRC) is an organization founded in 1996 by a group of local modelers in the Fort Worth, Texas area. It was originally formed to build a private, freelanced, permanent layout roughly based on the east/west route of the Texas & Pacific Railway. However, now in its second building location, the new layout has become a prototypical representation of railroads operating in and through Fort Worth, Texas, with the central focus being Tower 55. Built on three levels, it will offer long runs, state of the art metal benchwork, LED computer-controlled lighting, and both freight and passenger prototypical operations. It will have connections to narrow gauge country in Colorado and New Mexico as well.

In 2006, the Texas Western Railroad Association was formed as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and the TWMRC now operates under its auspices and guidelines. Our new facility will allow the Texas Western to develop an even greater experience for not only model railroaders but also for the railroad enthusiast, history buff, or those just fascinated by trains!

The club is located in our new headquarters at 6808 Forest Hill Drive, Forest Hill, Texas 76140.
