The Rensselaer layout is very ambitious. There are a small number of active student members, many without any previous modeling experience, who work when they have time to complete, update and maintain the layout. The layout seeks to accurately portray the major role railroads played in the industrial development of the country. The club's New England Berkshire & Western RR, set perpetually in September 1950, is fictional, but closely follows the Delaware & Hudson and the Rutland RR in routes and operations. The layout runs from Albany, NY to Montreal, Canada.


I have admired the Rensselaer layout since I first read about it in MR in the early eighties. Especially the scenery based on real locations struck a chord, like the Twin Tunnels and the Red Rock scenes. I am happy to see that the club is still going strong!

Thanks, Hauk, That is nice to read. The club is better known to modelers around the world than it is to students on the campus, but the club is starting to do things to improve that situation. You can see see projects and information from the club's extensive collection os information here: https://www.facebook.com/NEBandW.
