2011 - The Garden State Central Model Railroad Club has left our headquarters of 35 years in Asbury Park due to the sale of the building. We are looking to relocate to a home where a new museum quality display can be built and opened for the general public on select days. It will just be the second move in the 46 year history of the club which was founded in 1963 in Long Branch, N.J.

After 38 years in the Old Fort Washington Elementary School, the GATSME Model Railroad Club is looking for a new home. It was a long run in one location and it allowed the club to essentially finish the railroad. Our gracious host Upper Dublin Township sold the building in August and the new owner will not renew our lease which expires May 31, 2013.

The Model Engineers Railroad Club of North Jersey was founded in 1934 in Paterson, NJ.  In 1954 we moved to our most recent location in North Haledon, NJ.  Our former layout was permanent, and approximately 50 by 42 feet.  The layout was three levels point to point, with approximately 3000 feet of hand laid track.  It loosely represents the area around northern New Jersey.  Unfortunately due circumstances beyond our control we where forced to vacate the premises.  We hope find a new home in the future.
