Club Information

CentraMod is a model railroad club located in Temple, Texas. Meetings are typically held each month on the first and third Saturday at the historic Santa Fe Moody Depot. Be sure and check the Club Calendar for events and club hours.

Visitors are welcome to view operating train layouts in N, HO, and O (Lionel) Scales. If the doors are open while members are working during the middle of the week, visitors are welcome for a non-operating tour. There is no charge for admission.

CentraMod is now partnered with the City of Temple Parks and Leisure Services to provide a Model Railroad Museum and Model Railroad Activites to serve the general public.


Over the years, CentraMod’s layouts have participated in every major train show in all of the major cities. Modules have won Best of Show and received Honorable Mentions at NMRA National Train Shows. Read how this "club" organized its first train show before it was even a club here.
