Welcome to the Clipper City Model Railroad Clubs webpage.  Our club started back in 1960 and has grown to be one of the best clubs in Wisconsin.  I am proud and honored to be president of a club that is progressive, talented and outright fun.  We have members of all ages and with differing talents aimed at presenting model railroading to the public and helping to maintain railroad history.  Stop in and see our displays in N, HO, S, O and G scales.  Or even better, become a member and help us move forward.
