Our annual Model Railroad Tour was well attended this year with the busiest day being Saturday when over 1600 layout visitations. Thanks to everyone who assisted in getting the word out.
Members will recall the Club won recognition in the Walthers 2020 Model Railroad Reference Book in their Annual Yearbook section.
