The RIT Model Railroad Club (RITMRC) was founded in early 1996 to promote the hobby of model railroading and to preserve the history of Rochester's railroads. We welcome any RIT students who wish to learn more not only about trains, but also building scale models, electronics, scenery effects, software, and more! We meet most Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. in Room A420 (lower level Student Union across from Tech Crew offices). Like us on Facebook to follow the progress as we build our new model railroad!
