About Us

Welcome to the home page of the CenterTrak Operations Group. This group has been in the minds of two avid model railroaders for some time, and finally became a reality on Monday, March 22nd, 2010. We held our first official meeting on Tuesday, March 30th, 2010.

All of the initial members of CenterTrak have been involved in modular railroading and railroad operations for many years. We have been talking about combining the two for some time and have finally begun the process to do so. We have decided to adopt the Free-mo standards, adding some additional standards to enhance operations, for all of our modules. This will allow us to combine with other groups in larger setups, or setup as a group for various events and activities.

But CenterTrak will be much more than just building modules and running trains. We hope that the group can become a fellowship of model railroaders who get together to talk trains, build modules and equipment, watch movies, research, attend shows, and more. Anyone with an interest in model railroading, railfanning, or trains in general is welcome to join us.
