Pikemasters Model Railroad Club

My Local club in Colorado Springs. I have been a Member since the summer of 2005 and I routinely show up for meetings and to operate trains.
Majority of my fleet is based out of the club, with only a handful of engines and rolling stock being assigned at home compared to the club. 
For weekly photo updates from the club, visit www.facebook.com/pikemasters

The layout is located in the Colorado Springs city auditorium and occupies the old Colorado Springs City Police firing range.

This page just consists of some of my video and photos from the club
