Play: "I've Been Working on the Railroad"
Play: Train Sound
The Club was founded in March 1993 (in Alamogordo, NM) by three N-Scale enthusiasts who wanted to be able to share their love of the hobby as a nonprofit group. The name (ANTS) was chosen because it was felt that if you're going to be a bug, be one that goes to picnics. With 4 corner modules and only 3 members, the original lay out was something to see. The club has grown since it's inception and visiting any of our setups you'll be able to note a variety of ideas the members have used to do the scenery on their modules. The main requirement for membership is a desire to model N Scale trains.
The club built a train layout for the Alamogordo and Otero County Centennial. It depicts the route going to Cloudcroft from Alamogordo. This layout shows how difficult it could be to get from Alamogordo and Cloudcroft. We have donated this layout to the Sacramento Mountains Historical Society. They are located in Cloudcroft, New Mexico and the layout can be viewed there.
