Anthracite Model Railroad Society (HO)


The AMRS was organized in 1990. Layout is a custom built 21 feet by 54 feet layout consisting of 2 interconnected levels of track. The layout contains some 1,600 feet of HO gauge track which is made up of approximately 1,000 feet of flex track and 575 feet of hand laid track. We use both a conventional DC power system and a Digitrax DCC system. The DCC system consists of a DCS100 command station and 2 DB150 boosters. Both power systems are operated via radio controlled throttles. We can easily switch between power systems using one of our custom built control panels. The club owns some 400 pieces of rolling stock (cars) and several pieces of motive power (engines.) Our members own countless pieces of equipment ranging from Thomas the Tank rolling stock to sound equipped equipment and imported brass equipment.

  1. I believe this club is located in the Poconos, and it’s supposed to have Rio Grande and Burlington Northern passenger trains?!

    1. The club is located in Hazleton, PA and depicts the typical anthracite railroads that existed in that area–roads like Lehigh Valley, CNJ, PRR, Reading, Lackawanna.
