Fort Pitt Hi-Railers

Hi-Railer LayoutThe Fort Pitt Hi-Railers is a model railroad club whose members are from the greater Pittsburgh Area.  The group is sponsored by the Fort  Pitt Division and is dedicated to promoting model train collecting and operation through both TCA-sponsored and public events.

Members of the Fort Pitt Hi-Railers build individual modules which are made to established standards and specifications for length, track spacing, wiring, height, etc.  These modules are interchangeable and when connected together a train display can take many shapes and sizes.

Hi-Rail modeling is a concept in O-gauge where the 3-rail track is still used, but 1:48 scale-sized trains are run in as realistic environment as possible, with appropriate and 1:48 scale-sized details, structures, and scenery.

The club is always seeking new members.  Feel free to ask any of the members at any of the group's layout displays or use the "Contact Us" web mail for more information.

Photos of the various layout set ups including the largest 100 by 24 foot set up at the April 2014 York Meet can be found in the Photos section of this web site.
