About the LCTC

Our mission at the Lewis-Clark Train Club (LCTC) is to promote greater fellowship between model railroaders, advance and promote the hobby of model railroading wherever and whenever possible and further the objectives of the National Model Railroad Association and it's standards by instructing, aiding and assisting model railroaders in fulfilling their enjoyment of model railroading as a hobby.

Our Membership consists of Operators, Builders, Kitbashers, Amateur Historians and Collectors of Railroad Memorabilia and Model Railroading. In short, we are just your typical bunch of harmless train nuts having fun. In October of 2011 the Lewis-Clark Train Club became a 100% National Model Railroad Association (NMRA) club.

 Our Clubhouse is usually open most Saturdays from 10 am till 4 pm and if you would like to see our layouts or visit on other days call Dan Wise at 208-816-0845 and I will try to come and open up for you. 

Our members modeling interests go from N-Scale to Garden Railroads, DC and DCC train control.

The LCTC has a modular HO-Scale layout based on the former Camas Prairie Railroad and a traveling N-Scale layout for Train Shows, Model Railroad Swap Meets and Community Events.

Many of our members have operational home layouts built or in various forms of "under construction" in the scales and themes of their favorite road names, locations and/or time periods.

These layouts are in various sizes, from smaller switching puzzles to sprawling room sized empires that are on the verge of exceeding their original charters, those owners are in continuous negotiations with their "Legal Department" (wife) to obtain more Right of Way.
