About Us

Welcome to The Erecting Hall, I am N8PHU and I founded The Erecting Hall a number of years ago to bring together people with like interests who could help each other out. Our groups consists of current and former railroaders, professional graphic artists who are making artwork for Amtrak and other railroad endeavors, Current and former Military personnel, College students, and one guy who keeps satellites from falling out of the sky.

We are a group of modelers who are interested in the time frame from the 1930’s till modern day railroading. We have members who are interested in steam, diesel, electrics, buildings, infrastructure, freight / passenger car modeling. We plan to have quite a few of each, and maybe even a few surprises.

We have quite a lot planned and have the research for it… now if I can just get the to guys get out of that reefer car of beer and to quit BBQing out back on that old Alco turbo. Rumor is one of the guys built a still out of the cooling section of a GP-9…They will probably drink themselves blind if I don’t stop them.

Besides, it’s my turn on the tire swing.
