Welcome!

Welcome to the Ozarks Model Railroad Association, we call ourselves the OMRA.  We operate an HO scale model railroad located in Springfield, MO, depicting part of the Frisco Central Division railroad on Tuesday evenings.  Seminars on modeling and railroad history are frequently held as part of membership meetings and are open to the public.  We also hold two large model railroad shows each year, spring and fall, with multiple running layouts and model railroad vendors.  Please explore our website, visit and like us on  Facebook  , and above all, come to visit our club and layout.  See our contact page for more information.

Trains and Music!

Last summer the Johnson Strings, a musical group from Branson, approached us about producing a music video that featured trains, both model and full scale.  In early March 2021 they released the music video and we are happy to share it here.  It features our Frisco model railroad, along with scenes of full scale equipment at the Railroad Historical Museum in Grant Beach Park here in Springfield.  Take a few minutes to watch the video, and maybe watch it again.
