Club Membership


Membership is open to anyone interested in the large scale model railroading described in this website. This organization does not discriminate against any person or group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or religious belief.

All members receive the Pop Valve and a Members Handbook when they join the club. The handbook is a useful resource, that contains: a chronological history of the club; the constitution & by-laws; live steam standards; recommended practices for building track work; and all sorts of basic information helpful to beginners and veterans alike. Our club newsletter, the Pop Valve, is currently published six times a year and contains news about what is currently going on in the club. The handbook and the newsletter are available either on-line or printed. This website will be another resource for disseminating information to members.

REGULAR MEMBERSHIP is $120 per year. Regular members have full voting privileges and may hold office. They may run their own equipment on the club's tracks.
