WCMRRA is now in it's permanent home!
Since January 1st, 2015, the club has been at our new location at 9 W. Cass Street in downtown Joliet but in temporary space on the ground floor.
Effective November 1, 2016, we're in our permanent space in the basement while the rest of building undergoes redevelopment. Pictures coming soon!
9 West Cass Street in downtown Joliet
On Cass Street (also known as Route 30 West in downtown Joliet) between Chicago and Ottawa Streets,
right across the street from The Tree of Joliet,
just east of the Joliet Historical Museum,
and directly west of Juliet's restaurant and bar
Highlights of the our permanent space
- 3000 sq feet of space (light and bright) for modeling, train running, staging, operations, work space, member lockers, and more
- 24 X 7 access for club members
What about open houses?
You bet there are open houses!
The club will hold regular open houses each month on the third Sunday from 12-5 starting in January of 2017. Of course you're free to stop by any time
you like and see what's happening.
Since we don't have direct street level access anymore, ring the doorbell on the front door to get access.
What about parking?
There is on street parking available in front of and near the club in most of the downtown Joliet area. Rates are 25¢ per quarter hour in the area of the club with most meters having a two hour limit. The hours of enforcement are 9am – 5pm Monday–Friday and Saturday 8am – 1pm. The parking meters are FREE on Sundays and after 5pm daily week days and after 1pm on Saturday.
