Central Arizona Chapter

We are a chartered chapter of the ETE, which is the premiere North American organization focusing on European railroading. We generally meet in the central Arizona (Phoenix) area, but have members as far away as Tucson, and occasionally meet there as well. Our interests in European trains include, but are certainly not limited to: Austrian (OBB), French (SNCF), German (DB, DRB), Swiss (SBB, BLS, RhB)  We have members modelling in HO (2 rail DC, and Märklin 3 rail AC), N, O (2 rail DC, and 3 rail AC). We use DCC and Märklin digital. We enjoy variety, and love learning about what others are doing.  We participate is several train shows and swap meets.  We are also building modules which can be connected together to form a much larger layout, and yet still remain portable.. See our progress on the Module Project.  We participate is several train shows and swap meets.


We meet every second Saturday of odd numbered months. The venue changes often so everyone gets a chance to host a meeting if they choose. Meetings may be at a member's residence, restaurant, or other location. Contact one of the Chapter leaders for more details.
