Our monthly division meetings normally start at 7:00 pm with a model railroading clinic or workshop (see description below). A short business meeting follows the clinic. 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, May 16, 2016 at 7 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in West St. Louis County.
