Welcome to the Fever River Railroad
Stephenson Society of Model Trainsmen
The Fever River Railroad is a model railroad club located in Freeport, Illinois owned and operated
by the Stephenson Society of Model Trainmen, a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of
Illinois. We have built a large, permanent HO scale model railroad layout in our clubhouse which
was a boarding house for the Illinois Central Railroad Iowa Division. Our layout size is 120'-by-24'
including a staging yard with a helix for continuous operation.
- Fall Open House - November 18-19 from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
- The club will be displaying the module layout at the Monroe Train show in Sept 23-24.
- The club will be offering a custom paint covered hopper made by Accurail this fall. Cost is $25.00 for each car. Contact us for more information.
Special run cars are still available for 25 each! Email us for more information.
Club open houses are in the spring and fall and open to the public. We also operate our modular layout at a variety of train
shows in the area throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Visitors are welcome anytime we are at the clubhouse. We also will give tours for large groups if planned in advance.
Feel free to contact us to arrange for an appointment or tour.
We generally are at the clubhouse every Wednesday evening after 6:30 p.m. and every Saturday morning after 9:00 a.m.
