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.
