Each January marks the time for our annual Club dues payment for the year.  This year we look to have all the members paid by February train show in Estes Park President's day weekend.  As of today, we still have about a quarter of the members who have not paid their dues yet.  If you haven't please make it a point to do so soon.

To encourage payments we are strictly enforcing a "No Pay, No Play" policy at shows this year.  If you have any questions about the dues or need to setup a payment structure please work directly with Bill Nagel our Treasurer.

Episode 92: Steve Campbell  
Have you ever wondered how to get full use of the garage for your model railroad or how your wife might let you build a model railroad in the bedroom. It’s all here in the latest episode of a ModelersLife.  Like most of us Steve started out with a layout his father helped him build and now in retirement he enjoys the hobby even more. Steve models the New York Central on a 4’X 8’ layout that was featured in Model Railroader.  You can download and listen the podcast from here
