Capital Area Railway Society

          Welcome to the Capital Area Railway Society - our online home for members, guests and friends.  We invite you to look around and use the site to learn about us and discover more about the hobby that continues to fascinate us.   It challenges our imaginations and provides us countless hours of discovery, learning, camaraderie and leisure.


     All of our members enjoy creating the modules, realistically operating trains, and sharing their passion with the public through train shows during the year and our operations at the Impression 5 Science Center in Lansing, Michigan.   Part of our enjoyment of this hobby comes from not only modeling the trains and their environments, but also the system that moves them in real life.  

     Whether novices or old-timers, we HO Scale model railroaders tend to take the hobby seriously.  Maybe it's because -- at the end of the day -- we have once again connected with the delight and enjoyment of a hobby for everyone that often started in childhood, but can last a lifetime.  We hope you'll discover some of the magic as you visit this site and learn more about the club.

     Thanks for stopping by.   Be sure to visit us on our Facebook page.
