The Southern Oregon Chapter was founded in 1976. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the railroad history of Southern Oregon. The Chapter was directly responsible for the initiation and early development of the Medford Railroad Park and continues as a partner in the management of the park in cooperation with the Southern Oregon Live Steamers, the Rogue Valley Model Railroad Club, Southern Oregon Large Scale Trains, the Morse Telegraphy Club, and the City of Medford.
The Rogue Valley Model Railroad Club is located at the Railroad Park in Medford, OR. Originally the club featured a portable, modular layout seen at shows from Dunsmuir CA to Eugene, Medford and Klamath Falls, OR. Since 2003 we've been at work on a permanent layout depicting the Pacific & Eastern Railroad between Medford and Klamath Falls.
Medford Garden Railroaders, formally SOLST ~ Southwest Oregon Large Scale Trains has been a club in Medford since 1990. The club is organized to promote the enjoyment of these large scale model trains, both indoors and outdoors. This is truly a family hobby.
The club currently has 3 different layouts: the outdoor one you can see at the Medford Railroad Park, Medford, Or., an indoor layout for club members only, and a traveling modular layout which we take to shows.
