The GSMRR Club will be closed to visitors until further notice, due to the Coronavirus outbreak in Horry County. 

MEANWHILE . . . “Model Railroading Fundamentals,” the article submitted by Boy Scout Troop 325 of Lake Jennings CA, has been moved to the Links Page.  It has some great information on the basics of model railroading and many useful links to sites addressing specific aspects of the hobby.  This could be an ideal time to learn more about the hobby or, if you’ve already begun, to work toward completing or improving your layout.

NEW PAGE: The new “Home Layouts” tab at the top of this page will take you to our new slide show gallery of photos of model railroads GSMRR members have built in their homes.


The Grand Strand Model Railroaders, Inc. exists to further the hobby of model railroading. The club was founded in 1986 above Ed’s Hobby Shop in Myrtle Beach, SC with six members. The club is  now celebrating 30+ years. We have grown to 60+ members who form a diverse group to share their knowledge with each other and with our visitors. Come visit us at our current location in Myrtle Beach Mall (Store #08) right next to Bass Pro ShopsWe opened on August 20, 2011 and on April 20, 2019  welcomed our 250,000th Visitor!    We are a charitable, non-profit organization in South Carolina.  If you or your organization would like to make a  monetary donation to our club, it would be greatly appreciated.  Come see trains running on five layouts:  G, HO, N, Z, & O (Lionel) Scale every Monday & Wednesday 12PM to 4PM and Saturday 10AM to 5PM.
