Citrus Model Railroad Club On-Line
In 2013, the N scale group began a complete rebuild, replacing the original modular bench work and building a completely re-designed layout. All new track and scenery has produced a smooth running layout with all the action of the old one in a more detailed and realistic setting. Although a model railroad is never really completed, the N scale rebuild was essentially finished by 2016.
Soon after the move to the Fairgrounds, the theme and era of the HO railroad being modeled was changed as the group’s primary emphasis shifted toward preparing the railroad for prototypical operations. The Withlacoochee RR name and Florida setting was dropped in favor of a western Pennsylvania setting, and an era in the mid-1950s. Operating sessions started as soon as the track was completed, providing regular monthly breaks from work sessions, beginning about 1998.
