Here is some of imagery from club members of their encounter with the UP 4014 as it made its way through West Wisconsin. More to come. Click the link at the beginning of the previous sentence or the image above.

Welcome to the West Wisconsin Railroad Club

Based in Eau Claire, WI we gather often to enjoy our common interest of trains and model railroading. We have a "permanent" home (as permanent as life gets and as long as we pay the rent) on the north side of town. We are building a layout on which we hold regular operating sessions. We also have a large modular and portable layout that we take them to shows and other venues. Bylaws have been written and adopted and we have been granted 501c3 status by the IRS so tax deductible donations may be made to the club. Visit us some time. See our meeting schedule at the top right on this page.

What about membership? We are, of course, open to new members, male and female. For more information please go to our Membership page. Two levels of membership are available.

Name that Structure Quiz

Pictures for the "Name that Structure" quiz are needed. Let's keep this to railroad structures located in the West Wisconsin area as first choice and other Wisconsin railroad structures when we run out of them.

Submit your guess to the club webmaster. (See Contact Us for the email address.) Specify the location of the structure and the railroad that owns it, if known. Your guess and name (optional) will be listed here.
