About Dry Hill Model Railroad Club

The Dry Hill Model Railroad Club started in 1994 as the Dry Hill Terminal Railway with four members and one module - Dakota Falls. 

Dakota Falls

The club grew - currently 36 members - and so did the layout. Many industries have been added, including a Coca-Cola bottling plant that took a year to construct. A hump yard, passenger terminal, and 22-track, 56-foot staging yard all add to the realistic operation of Dry Hill.

And, we have the Haunted Tunnel - a spectator favorite for kids of all ages.

We run 100-car freight trains, Amtrak passenger trains, and excursion trains operated by Southern Pacific, Providence & Worcester, and Conway Scenic railroads.

Each year, the Dry Hill layout is set up in the Mallory Building at the Amherst Railway Society’s Railroad Hobby Show, and each year show visitors ask many questions about the design and construction of the layout. We answer as many questions as we can during the show, but we also offer hands-on workshops on modular and sectional construction for those who want to learn more for either home or club layouts.
