Onslow Model Railroaders blend patience, imagination, artistry

Bells, whistles, horns and engine noises — The Onslow Model Railroaders hear it all on Tuesday nights. 

“Most of us older fellows grew up with working trains all over the country,” said Roger Alvis, Onslow Model Railroaders President. Trains aren’t our main form of transportation anymore and model railroads have grown less popular. Member Rob Robinson added that “fewer and fewer towns even have a hobby store, let alone a train store.” Despite this, the members are the Onslow Model Railroaders are motivated and hopeful, and very talented. 

Rob Robinson and Bernie Rosage Sr. have been building onto N Scale layout for 20 years. The N Scale is the group’s transportation or show layout. It includes 10 separate modules, or tables. The layout has won “best in show,” is very picturesque and highly detailed including shrubbery, roads, mountains, farms, cars, people and more. The furthest show the N Scale has travelled to was a regional show in Virginia Beach, Virginia. “I’d like to do a local open house or show where we can assemble this and show off the train,” said Robinson. 

They use some odd materials to complete a layout, “anything that will work.” Just to build the N Scale, they have used hairspray, ground foam, cardboard, plaster, tree branches, tree bark, cheese cloth, saw dust, and toothpicks. It takes patience and imagination, but members get ideas from each other and share techniques. 

Arvis described building model railroads as “a hobby that includes other hobbies,” including woodworking, electrical, computers, painting, and design. A layout doesn’t include just the train and a track, but also scenery and maybe even a story. It takes some artistry and talent and the members are there to help each other. Arvis enjoys making scenery the most, so he uses other members to help him with the aspects he isn’t confident with or doesn’t enjoy as much.

In 2008 the Onslow Model Railroaders restored the caboose that sits in Riverwalk Park in downtown Jacksonville. And they also built a layout depicting the town of Jacksonville which is on display at the Onslow County Museum in Richlands.

In DCC model trains, the train speed, direction, and other special features are controlled via a bipolar bit stream that is transmitted on the train tracks along with the power. A DCC decoder is located inside each train's engine that interprets the  ...

Sunday morning we set up the DCC astute panniers and kicked off with those, whilst I got a feedback controller and Pete wired it up. That too had its challenges in the DIN up pins were a divers diameter so it had to be swapped and re-wired. The DCC was checked and that worked ok, but meant two locos for the whole exhibit if the DC controller couldn’t be replaced or repaired. Current Saturday afternoon one of the Gaugemaster get was looking at the layout and I mentioned that the tournament wasn’t as special-occasion as I trace it could be, and he suggested that we try an ‘HH’ feedback controller, which they had in investment. thegoodsyard  resulted in Richard digging out from their construction wares a Gaugemaster Model W walkabout controller.

Onslow Model Railroaders blend patience, imagination, artistry A DCC train has a computer chip in its engine. Traditional older trains are controlled by a Direct Current (DC), so if you try to put more than one engine on the track the trains will drain power from each other. The Onslow County Railroaders have both
