Shortly after the founding of the San Diego Model Railroad Museum a group of N-Scale modelers decided to join the new organization. A layout was designed to take advantage N-Scale's small size (160 to 1) by offering sweeping vistas, large yards and detailed cityscape. Based on a proposed turn of the century railroad linking San Diego to points east, the Pacific Desert Lines is one of the largest N-Scale layouts in the world. You can visit the SDSONS web site.
Membership in SDSONS is open to anyone interested in model railroading. Children under 16 require supervision of a parent or adult sponsor. The club welcomes beginners and modelers at all levels of experience. Many club members are expert modelers whose award winning works have appeared in national magazines. They are happy to pass along tips, techniques, and information to anyone interested in modeling.
SDSONS meets at the museum every Friday evening at 7:30 to work on the layout. Business meetings are held on the third Friday of March, June, September, and December.
