1985 WTTC was organized in the garage of charter member, Gene Rasler. The club's first major project was the design and building of a 12-foot by 16-foot display layout for the Children's Museum of Wichita.
2000 the club opened a 1,400 square foot area suite in the Pawnee Plaza Mall named Train-Mania.
2001, the club moved to a larger suite in the lower level of the Twin Lakes Mall and was dubbed "Train Mania II".
2003, WTTC became incorporated, and in July 2003 received its 501c3 status.
2006 we celebrated our Twentieth Anniversary with visits from O-Gauge Railroading magazine editor Jim Barrett and the M.T.H. VP of Sales & Marketing, Rich Foster. WTTC and its Taggart Railroad layout appeared as feature articles in the December 2007 issue of OGR.
2012 WTTC moved to our permanent home at 130 S Laura in Wichita. Come See Us! We have various layouts arranged throughout the building for your enjoyment.
2016 On October 8th & 9th WTTC will celebrate its anniversary of 30 years promoting our great hobby.
"The Wichita Toy Train Club" (WTTC) is an organization of collectors and operators for both classic tinplate and current hi-rail trains. Club members are generally oriented toward "O-gauge" (Lionel, MTH, Atlas, Williams, Weaver, Marx) and “S-gauge” (American Flyer). Some members are also interested in the larger "G" and smaller "HO" and "N" gauges, with some extensive layouts house at our museum. Come visit us, and we can put you in touch with many other model toy organizations.
