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.

You know by now, we cancelled the 2020 Convention in St. Louis. We thought Covid-19 precluded any other choice, but we are very much aware that we must move forward.

There are new Member Only products and plans are well underway for Cleveland in 2021 and an 'Even Better' St. Louis Convention in 2022. Watch these pages as our plans roll out.

 


(Of the parralels between the railways and the church) both had their heyday in the mid-nineteenth century; both own a great deal of Gothic-style architecture which is expensive to maintain; both are regularly assailed by critics; and both are firmly convinced that they are the best means of getting man to his ultimate destination. - Reverend W. Awdry
