About The Lionel Modular Group of DFW
Welcome to the Lionel Modular Group website. The Lionel Modular Group, formed in 1988, is a non-profit organization that normally meets the first Monday of the month. A short business meeting is conducted and members are encouraged to bring and run their trains.
We are a friendly group of 3-rail O gauge and 3-rail Standard gauge model train enthusiasts, who collect and operate model trains from all eras. Lionel, K-Line, Weaver, MTH, and other brands are represented in our members’ collections.
We operate Post War Lionel trains from our childhood to the newer Lionel Legacy, TMCC, Vision lines plus MTH Proto-sounds and MTH DCS equipment. We even have those special operating cattle cars, crane cars, milk cars and even a missile car from yesteryear to the newer “O gauge” scale cars of today.
Occasionally meetings are held to work on the layout and run trains. It is easy to see that the main theme of our club is to run trains and promote our hobby at public venues.
The Lionel Modular Group adopted the new LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad components in 2013. This was the vision of our past president Paul Hargis, who was instrumental by moving our club in this direction. Our group has acquired and built 4 full corners and 14 straight modules. There’s even a module with the famous Lionel Hell Gate Bridge on our Standard gauge loop.
Our new layout will provide us with the flexibility to vary the size and shape of the layout, not to mention the capability of joining our modules to other clubs modules who have conformed to the LCCA specifications.
Our Club’s layout has two loops of Lionel O gauge Fastrack and one loop of MTH Standard gauge track that supports all 3-rail O-gauge and Standard gauge train from yesteryear to those made today.
When you attend an event or show, stop by and say hello to our members, bring a train to run with us and join our group of train enthusiasts.
