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.

What's New at the Ozark's Model Railroad Association?
This month the Ozark’s Model Railroad Association is upgrading the control system used to control the trains on the OMRA Frisco layout. We are replacing our aging and failing Digitrax equipment with the DR5000 Digicentral command station by Digikeijs. Working with Iron Planet Hobbies, the US distributor for Digikeijs, we have purchased the DR5000 and three boosters, along with six new WiFi throttles. Ryan at Iron Planet has helped us set up the configuration on the new equipment and we are currently testing various features of the system before swapping out the old equipment.

During the next several weeks we will be holding mini-training sessions on the new equipment, and a seminar at our membership meeting in November 5 will focus on training for the new system. Stop by and visit us, learn about the new system, and see how we are coming in our transition. This is a great opportunity for learning about model railroad control systems!
