About Us

Club Building

The West Central Model Railroad Club is located at 805 Clifton St. in Sparta, Wisconsin. The setting is an HO scale, permanent layout club located in the club’s own building, adjacent to the Canadian Pacific Railway (formerly Soo Line, formerly Milwaukee Road) mainline between Chicago and St. Paul.  

The club purchased the building in the fall of 1987 and started building the layout in 1988.   The West Central Model Railroaders’ 1,500 square foot building has an extensive HO scale model railroad in progress. Approximately seven scale miles (425 feet) of main line track has been constructed.  Crawford Yard and Woodman Yard are focal points on the layout. Several sidings and spurs are strategically located along the entire route, serving towns and industries. The layout features a wide variety of scenery and has several tunnels and several hand-built trestles.
