  • Clinics: Modelling Techniques, Scratchbuilding, Painting, and Scenery
  • Presentations: Updates from the Durango Railroad Historical Society, Friends of the Cumbres and Toltec, and other Railroad News and History.
  • From the Workbench: Bring something you are working on. It does not have to be a finished product or anything approaching a ‘perfect’ model. Share a technique or tools that you have tried and liked or did not like. Review of a kit, structure, or rolling stock you have built or modified.
  • From the Collection: Bring a railroad related item you have in your collection such as photos, historical items, and models.
  • Favorite Train Contest: Bring an engine and at least a few cars. Meeting attendees will vote on their favorite. Winner gets a free subscription to the San Juan Flyer
  • Superintendent's Award: A $20 gift certificate will be awarded for the best workbench, collection, or favorite train entries.
  • Swap Tables: Swap tables will be available for NMRA members and Flyer subscribers.
  • HO Modular Layout: A set of the compact and mobile SSJD 16" HO Modules will be on display. See how modular model railroading works.

We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting!
