Responsibilities of Members

In 2010 our club became a 100% NMRA Club. It is the responsibility of all members to supply and maintain their NMRA membership. All New Members must be or become a member of the NMRA. The Club has a supply of application and renewal forms. All Junior member must be an NMRA member as well. He / She can be a family member on the membership of the Parent or Guardian.

Club Members are expected to do their fair share of cleanup and maintenance chores. To keep formal obligations of the membership at the lowest level possible, we rely on the voluntary contributions of the members for the rime and material. In addition, the club sponsors a major railway show each spring, the proceeds of which go to covering most of the clubs operating expenses. We also participate in several shows throughout the year. We encourage all members to participate as often as their schedule allows. Also all members are encouraged to complete a section of our modular layout to display at some of the shows they attend. All members have the same rights and privileges

Meetings

Meetings are held every Tuesday from 6:30 to 9:30 pm and alternate between work nights and operating nights. Business meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month. Our club layout is accessible 7 days a week to our Members.
