The Japan Rail Modelers (JRM) of Washington DC is an informal group of train modelers in the greater Washington DC Metro area that focuses on modeling Japanese rail systems. Our goal is to support and encourage modeling of Japanese rail systems and provide public education about the extensive Japanese railroads. We have produced a 72 square foot portable, Japanese themed N Scale layout that can be displayed at model railroading shows and cultural events.
