FUNTRAK

Mission

FUNTRAK's primary purpose is to share our model railroading hobby interests with others. We are a modular style Railroad Club open to ALL Scales, and are active throughout the Northeast Region of the U.S. at various Model Train Shows, Civic activities, and Community functions. We enjoy the benefits of working together to promote the model Railroad hobby, and invite you to join us, no matter what scale your interests lie. We are here to have FUN at FUNTRAK!

History

FUNTRAK was started by Brian King in 1992 in Frankfort, New York. It was a little over a year before FUNTRAK had any modules built that were to be displayed in public. However, after the first module was constructed and displayed, things really began to happen. The first "official" club setup was at club member Clayt Farrall's house in May 1994. This was a small ten by eighteen layout that was a proverbial "plywood forest". In less than two months scenery was added to the modules, more new modules were constructed, and FUNTRAK held its first public show at Mohawk Valley Community College in July. This was a small ten by twenty two foot layout that fit between the pillars in the huge conference room at the college. FUNTRAK currently has enough modules to now fill the entire conference room. Some of the highlights of club activities since its beginnings include:

The future looks very bright for FUNTRAK and we hope to attract many new members. Our "Valley Rail Sights" theme has been very popular with the public and we expect to model many more of the sights in the Mohawk Valley. If this sounds like something you would enjoy being a part of, consider joining FUNTRAK.
