About SWLS/Contact Us

The Southwestern Live Steamers is a non-profit club formed in 1972 to promote large scale model railroading and all forms of live steam including stationary and marine.  This club is unique in the hobby in that it has no property of its own.  Rather it meets at the private tracks of its members giving the membership a different experience with each gathering.

Members meet six to eight times per year at locations all over the state of Texas. These meets provide an opportunity for members to operate the models they bring and discuss with one another and invited guests.

The membership is diverse and includes junior members, skilled craftsmen, lawyers, and doctors.  Anyone with a passion for large scale model railroading or live steam in general will find like-minded members in SWLS.  Some members love to build.  Some love to run.
