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 in-person meetings. Guests are always welcome. We currently are only doing Zoom-based meetings due to the pandemic.
Our next scheduled meeting is on Monday, July 19, 2021 at 7 p.m. as an online Zoom meeting.
