Welcome to the Oregon Coast Railroad
The Oregon Coast Railroad is an HO scale model railroad set in 1956. The area modeled follows the Columbia River from Portland to Astoria and then south along the Pacific Ocean to Tillamook and Depoe Bay. Modeled activities include an ocean port with a tramp steamer and car float, a large yard and engine facility, a small river fishing town, and a large lumber mill.
Layout construction began in May 2005. Electrical and track work are complete and more then 95% of the scenery is done.
Operating sessions are conducted regularly.
OREGON COAST RAILROAD
In 1959 an Oregon neighbor gave me a box of old Model Railroader, Railroad Model Craftsman, and Model Trains magazines. Fifty years later I am still reading evey new issue and enjoying model railroading more than ever.
This is the fourth version of the Oregon Coast Railroad and the first designed for operations.
My very supportive wife Victoria and I live in Gainesville, VA. We have three grown children, a granddaughter, and a grandson.
