Dues Payment & Donations
Help us grow! The Muskegon Railroad Historical Society is a registered 501c3 corporation with papers filed with the State of Michigan. We are always graciously looking for donations to our organization. Cash, will, trust and other monetary donations can be arranged by contacting the Society through the website or by mailing us at MRHS 561 W. Western Ave. Muskegon MI 49440

Donations of historical artifacts or documents can be brought to the club during normal hours or contact the Society and we can arrange a special time. We do take donations of model trains and model railroad supplies but donation of these types of these items should be prearranged with the Society.

All donations are tax-deductable and you will receive a form for use in filing for your income tax.

We unfortunately are unable to "appraise" the value of any historical or model railroad related items. We can put you in contact with businesses or individuals that can do legal appraisals.

Muskegon Railroad Historical Society Board approves N-Scale Layout
In a unanimous vote, the Board of Directors overwhelmingly approved the proposal bought forward by N Scale chairman Mark Kelley. The board had many questions in their deliberations but in the end came together to make the approval for the members of the N Scale group to move forward in the tear down and then re-build of a more updated representation of Muskegon Michigan area rail traffic in N Scale
Members will pay $100.00/year or $10.00/month surcharge to be a participating member of the N Scale group. This surcharge and any monies from the sale of N Scale donations or existing N Scale equipment not pertinant to the time period being modeled will go to fund the new layout.

The N Scale group has chosen to model the Grand Trunk Railroad from Muskegon to Grand Rapids, via Revenna and Conklin then down through Penn Junction.

The layout will be double decked around the perimeter of the layout room, Control system will be DCC (Digitrax).

12/15/12 - New bench work construction continues. All usable track that has been taken off the exisitng layout has been cleaned and prepped for track laying to begin on the new layout.

2/05/13- Track work has started on the new N-Scale layout and bench work will continue just as soon as the rest of the old layout is removed. Track, buildings and all other usable items have been removed. Benchwork will be done soon.

3/15/13 - Old layout has been dismantled, New benchwork construction continues.

3/19/13 - Henry Street Yard tracks are in place on the layout.

4/10/13 - Power drops from the tracks in Henry St. Yard are being installed. The Railroad Car Ferry dock area of the layout is being formed and built up.

A chronicle of the efforts to create a new model railroad basement layout.
Check out Tim's blog. He plans to chronicle the creation of his HO scale layout. So far it is a great read and I am sure it will get even better once he starts the build process. Great pictures, track plan, and some history.

I highly recommend reading his blog and coming to meet Tim at the MRHS building. On most Saturdays he can be found in the HO room or the back work room.

Also, for those interested in a website to display their work is a great, easy to use and free, alternative to requesting space on the MRHS website.
