​​​What's New At OMRA?

New Locomotives Delivered to the Frisco!

Following club approval in April to allocate the funds we have obtained two new locomotives in Frisco red and white that have sound decoders installed.  This gives an added dimension to our weekly operating sessions with the rumble of diesels rolling down the HO scale tracks, in harmony with the BNSF heavy iron rolling by across the street.  The GP38-2 was delivered earlier in May and has been in the shop getting a sound decoder installed - see the Installation Slide Show on the Articles Page.  It will make it's initial run later in June but will be at the club for a demo June 6th.  An SD45 was delivered two weeks ago and has made an initial revenue run on the layout.  

Spring Show Enjoyed by Many Model Railroaders!

Our Spring Train Show on March 11 was a big hit with area model railroaders of all ages!  Thank you for coming to see us!  

Here are some photos from our local newspaper, the Springfield News Leader.
