The FMR (Fredericton Model Railroad Club) aka, (Fredericton Model Railroaders), was founded in 1975 by a group of interested modelers in the Fredericton area. Today, it includes members from Oromocto to Woodstock, NB. There are around 45 members now with approximately 20 - 25 active members, including, several of our original members.
We have an executive, club dues, and the occasional formal meeting. Also, a different member hosts a get together at their home each month. During the year, we hold several events and at times are invited to take part in others.
Model Railroading involves many different facets. Including, but not limited to; "carpentry, electrical (both practical and electronics), creating and painting scenery, DCC (Digital Command Control) for controlling the trains), wireless operations, building models, and using your smart phone to control the trains". Not to mention, exercising your imagination and your artistic flair.
This FMR welcomes all adults and young people, who, are interested in the hobby. Having experience in model railroading, is not a requirement, as the Members are here to help everyone learn and that includes themselves.
