The general concept of the Napa Valley Northern was of a railroad line running from Napa north through Lake County, with northbound connections to Portland, and southbound connections to Stockton. The layout was over 1500 feet of track. The time period is from 1940 to present. The observer did see various types of prototype and freelance rail equipment and buildings around the layout. Because of space limitations, areas were not reproduced in their exact geographical configurations.

The Napa Valley Model Railroad Historical Society was formed in 1955 for the purposes of constructing an HO Scale layout and to advance the hobby of model railroading in the Napa Valley and surrounding areas. The Society was incorporated in 1966.

We have had layouts in a few locations, Veterans Home of  California in Youtville and Napa Valley Expo from 1970 to 2021.
