Welcome to the Southbound Model Railroaders' home on the Web!  Thank you for stopping by to visit.  We are a group of model railroading enthusiasts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  Our group is made up of people from all walks of life who are brought together by a common love of railroading.  Our layout is based on an era when steam and Diesel ran the rails together.  Prototypes used for this era are the Southern Railway and Norfolk & Western during the 1950's.


Now going into its 40th year, the Southbound Model Railroaders (SMR) present the largest, fully sceniced HO-gauge layout in the Triad.  The layout is powered by the latest technological advance in wireless digital Command Control (DCC).  The layout size is about 35'x30', with more than 2700 feet of track, and several miles of wiring.  SMR simulates a portion of the 1958 era Southern Railway and Norfolk & Western locales of North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.  The Club operates about 63 engines and 400 revenue cars.


SMR meets every Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM.  Club Operations is held the first Tuesday of each month and a business meeting is held the third Tuesday of each month. Visitors are welcome on the second and fourth Tuesdays.

At this time a portion of our layout is being remodeled! We tore down the entire N&W and a portion of the Southern. We are Now test running trains at this time. For your safety, please stay clear of the construction area. The Southbound will return better than ever!
