Niagara Orleans Model Railroad Engineers Inc. (NOME), was founded over 40 years ago by a small group of railroad fans to promote all aspects of the hobby of model railroading.  Our meetings are held at the “Niagara County Safety Building” in Lockport, NY.  The membership also provides operating displays of “N” and “HO” Scale modular layouts throughout the region.
