NWV Action

This week we have two operating sessions on the NWV layout. Friday morning is a normal daytime operating session. Saturday is a modified operating session where members may bring their own DCC equipped locomotives and rolling stock to run on the layout. Non-members may operate the layout for a fee.

Next month, we continue the rolling stock building and tuning clinic series and have a daytime work session planned near the end of the month. Check the calendar for specifics and the latest updates.
