The Rocky Mountain Hi-Railers invite you to join in the fun of S-scale. Based in Boise, we have members in all corners of the state who are dedicated to promoting 1:64 scale model railroading. Our award-winning portable layout, Lookout Junction, has been featured in S magazines and in video, and represented Idaho at the National Train Shows in Seattle (2004) and Sacramento (2011). At 550 square feet, Lookout Junction provides the option of AC/DCC operation, running four independent trains on two levels with 45 turnouts, two wyes, a 10-track yard, two crossovers, an HO-scale ("narrow gauge") logging train, a radio-controlled helicopter, and the famous double crossing that gives the layout its name.
