Updated Visitation 

With COVID-19 Concerns again on the rise, Membership has elected to again suspend Public Run Nights on Mondays. We will continue to be open to Current, Probationary, and Prospective Members, and by Special Arrangement. 

This WILL NOT impact any already scheduled events. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Our Next Train Show:

Come and meet Scaletrains at the Naptown & White River Model Railroad club Thursday, October 7th, at 7PM.

The Club will open to the public at 6:45. ScaleTrains will present next door at JBN Family Appliance. Free Admission. Drinks will be provided. We are asking masks be worn. After the presentation, the layout will be back open.

There will not be anything for sale.

Our Clubhouse is located on the Southside of Indianapolis. From I-65, take the Raymond St. Exit #109 and turn West (toward White Castle) then make an Immediate Left (South) onto Shelby Street. Drive approximately 1.5 miles and turn left onto McDougal. The clubhouse is immediately on the right.

     The Naptown & White River is a primarily HO scale club located in the southeastern quadrant of Indianapolis. All scales and enthusiasts of trains and model trains, of any age and/or skillset are welcome. As the oldest still-active model railroad group in Indianapolis, we seek to encourage growth of the hobby, enjoyment by the public, enthusiasm between friends and family, and education for all.
