Meetings and Events

Monthly Meetings

Monthly meetings are (usually) the 1st Sunday of each month at 1:30pm with Division business, a Clinic (or two), a Bring & Brag, and discussion.  After most meetings we have a tour of a member's layout.  Details and locations for meetings are published in the Lantern and on this page.

For privacy reasons, locations of member layout tours are not published on the website, but will be available in the Lantern and announced at the meeting.

Weekly Trains Night

Each week we have an informal gathering at a member's layout to help with projects, discuss model railroading, and enjoy some snacks.  Occasionally a member will put on a mini-clinic, but the atmosphere is centered around socializing and layout construction.

Trains night is a Division members only event.

Operating Sessions

Several members host monthly or quarterly operating sessions at their home layouts.  Some have limited attendance due to layout capacity.  Operating sessions are listed on the Division calendar but are private events. Contact the session host for more information.

Other Events

Throughout the year, the division sponsors other events such as summer picnics, Trains Day at the library, the Regional and National NMRA conventions, road trips to distant operating sessions, or participation in other railroad or model-related events nearby.  Watch the calendar for more details!

Bring & Brag

An opportunity to share our modeling and photography. At each meeting we have a theme, and members bring their models or photographs to share with the group.  The group then votes for who gets "bragging rights."
