Regular division model railroading meetings are open to the public and are on the third Monday of each month. Refreshments are provided at the meeting. Guests are always welcome.
Our next scheduled meeting is on Monday, January 16, 2017 at 7 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in West St. Louis County.
