Established in 2018 with a membership roll of over 50 people, the Back Mountain Railroad Club's only prerequisite for joining the club is an interest in railroads and/or model railroading. The goal of the club is to introduce a new generation to the history of the industry which truly built this country and to the family-friendly hobby of model railroading. Youth members, as well as families, are encouraged to join.
The Back Mountain Railroad Club is structured under bylaws and is registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Club has several scale model layouts, runs a store for the sale of model trains, and maintains a free library housed at the Twin Stacks Complex at 1184 Twin Stacks Drive, Dallas, PA, 18612.
