Who we are
The Fullerton Model
Railroad Historical Society (FMRHS) is a non-profit group of volunteers
dedicated to preserving our local rail and historical heritage. A
committee of the Fullerton Railway Plaza Association, our future goal is
to design and construct an operating museum-quality historical model railroad
layout, which will ultimately be housed in the proposed FRPA museum, located
next to the Fullerton train depot. This exhibit will be designed
to give maximum access and education to the public through use of FMRHS
volunteers. (Click here
for more information on the FRPA.) (Click here
for an archive of FMRHS press releases.) (Click here

and entertainment to the public

Currently, we are
constructing a portable HO scale display with accompanying photos depicting
Fullerton during the 1940s and 1950s. The initial in-progress display
is exhibited at Fullerton Railroad Days. Further expansion of this
display to a larger operating layout is planned with other exhibitions
to take place throughout the Southland.
We meet at the
Fullerton Chamber of Commerce building every month on the fourth Tuesday

The FMRHS is constructing
an historically accurate model railroad layout focused on Southern California,
with special emphasis on Orange County and Fullerton. This photo
shows the scale model of the Fullerton depot that will be a focal point
of the layout. Be sure to stop by our booth at Fullerton Railroad
Days (May 5th & 6th, 2001 at the Fullerton Depot) to see our plans
and initial efforts. (Click

display of the Fullerton depot area- circa 1950, along with a photo gallery
of vintage scenes of Fullerton and the railroads of the region.
