Welcome to the official website of Southern Wisconsin Sandhouse Crew! The Sandhouse crew is an HO Scale model railroad club with it's membership centered in the Madison, Wisconsin area. The club formed in 2005 with the idea of being a modular railroad group. We have no permanent layout, but instead put together a portable layout made up of member- and club-owned modules. These modules can be configured in a variety of ways to make up layouts that we display at local train shows.
More on the club and our layout can be found on the pages in the menu bar above.

Best of Show!
At the February 2015 Mad City Model Railroad Show and Sale the SWSC took home the "Best of Show" award for the layout! This is our third Best of Show award in the 10 years that we have been displaying the layout at the Mad City show.
