About the Club


The purpose of the Piedmont 'N Southern Model Railroad Club is to promote the hobby of model railroading through creation of an operating modular N-scale model railroad layout built to Ntrak and/or Bend Track standards. This layout is intended to be displayed to the general public.  We are a 100% NMRA club.

2023 CRMHA Show in Easley, SC

A great show in Easley, SC (Rock Springs Church Impact Center) on Feb 17-18, 2023. The show was very well-attended, with lots of interest from our visitors. We showcased our recent enhancements to the Turntable module (roundhouse lights and bridge programming). The Georgia guys brought a couple of great-looking new (to us) modules which also enhanced the running potential. Trains ran well. Had a couple of electronic head-scratchers but we were able to work around them in a timely fashion.

Mauldin CofC Trains, Trains & More Trains 2017

The Mauldin Chamber of Commerce held their annual Trains, Trains & More Trains event on Sept 8th, 9th, 10th, 15th and 16th, at the Chamber of Commerce building. The show was very well attended (4,700 visitors?). The first weekend we ran the traditional loop, then during the week replaced one end with John's 2 end loops, and ran this configuration for the 2nd weekend. This provided walk-in access to the pit area with a trade-off in reduced loops (4 down to 2).

Clinton, SC Rhythm on the Rails 2017

The 2017 Clinton Rhythm on the Rails street festival was a success, and the Piedmont N Southern once again appreciated being a part of it. We set up our standard loop with side yard on Friday, May 19 and ran Friday night and all day Saturday, with teardown and loadup on Saturday evening, May 20. We had a steady trickle of visitors, all seemed to enjoy the show, and the air conditioning. We ran lots of trains, and found and fixed a few wiring and track issues.
