The Walnut Creek Model Railroad Society (WCMRS) operates the Diablo Valley Lines (DVL) model railroad, one of the most mountainous and one of the largest exclusively HO scale model railroads in the United States. This model railroad features standard gauge, narrow gauge, and interurban (overhead electric) freight and trolley lines. A couple of times a month, the Walnut Creek Model Railroad Society throws open its doors to the general public. And we get to see one of the best miniature railroad layouts in the country, painstakingly built and maintained over decades by the WCMRS
Families and train buffs can 'ride' the Diablo Valley Lines all year long during their shows, featuring hundreds of model trains representing the mid-20th century through today, traveling over 4,300 feet of track on one of the world's most mountainous model railroad layouts.
The elaborate 34- by 56-foot layout includes a composite of the mountainous area of the Western United States, bridges, tunnels, terrain from desert to snow covered mountains, towns, train yards, electric street cars, wind turbine, ski lift gondola and more. More than 200 train cars and 50 steam and diesel engines are in operation during the show, dispatched by two dedicated Walnut Creek Model Railroad Society members.
