Welcome to the BVMRRA Home Page!
The Brazos Valley
Modular Railroad Association is a loose-knit group of HO-scale
enthusiasts who got together to build a modular HO-scale layout.
We began in 1998 when Jeff Cermin made the suggestion that we
should have a modular layout in the Bryan/College Station area.
Of course, the fact that Jeff already had modules from when he
was a member of another club helped! Our first setup was at Post
Oak Mall over Father's Day weekend, 1998. Who knew that four
corners and four six-foot modules forming a 10' by 22' layout
would grow into a modular layout capable of filling a 40' by 40' room?

Membership is open to anyone who wants to build modules (see Standards
for more information), and best of all, there are NO DUES! If the
club needs materials for construction of new club-owned modules, a
collection is taken at that time. Individual modules are owned by
club members, except for the yard, corners, and lift-bridge module, all
of which belong to the club. No constraints are placed on what a
member may build on his or her module, except that the mainline tracks
must conform to club standards. Our members have built small
rural towns,farms, industrial areas, rivers with bridges crossing them,
and many other interesting modules. One member is currently
working on a 6' module of the Canyon Diablo Bridge!
We have set up in many places. From a garage for a child's
birthday party to a Christmas display in conjunction with the local
sports council to various train shows, we've been there. The
biggest event, however, has to be our two setups at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum
in conjunction with their Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse exhibit.
We were set up there for a total of six weeks, with trains
operating on the weekends. In fact, the first setup there in
October of 2005 was our largest layout yet...a large square measuring
34' to a side!
Look around, please! If you like what you see, or would like more information, please Contact Us!
