East Texas is home to variety of model toy trains.  They reach from Longview, South to Nacogdoches, West to Fort Worth, North to Red River border, and East to Shreveport / Bossier City, LA.

This web site is dedicated to those individuals who have model trains, layouts in progress or have one in operation, to groups and clubs that display trains at public events, to groups that display and attend our Texas Train Shows.  It must be said that in this hobby of model trains, "One’s layout is never finished and that their favorite train is the next one they buy".

There’s lots of railroad history here in East Texas and we want to focus on that history as well.

Come, go with us as we explore the model trains of East and North Central Texas plus those found in the Shreveport and Bossier City areas of Louisiana.
