Columbia Area 2022 Division Meet

On May 21, 2022, the fine folks at Dreams Come True Railroad (DCTRR) in Cassatt, SC hosted a special Palmetto Division meeting. We were treated to some interesting clinics regarding the DCTRR, an excellent hot dog lunch, and we got to ride the trains! We had a good turnout, including quite a few guests from neighboring NMRA divisions. On the way home, John Kelchner opened his beautiful layout for us to enjoy. A great time was had by all!

Division T-TRAK-HO modules

The Division has built several T-TRAK-HO modules  We plan on setting up the T-TRAK-HO layout at the Easley show and we can use it at other events in the future.  A number of T-TRAK-HO modules have been adopted by members of the Division.  But there are still two straight modules that are orphans, plus there is one of the Division's corner modules available for someone to add scenery to it.  Cost for adoption of the straight modules is $10 for a bare module with no track and $25 for a module with track and power wiring already installed.

Columbia 2019 Division Meet

Our Columbia 2019 Division Meet was held April 13 at Arsenal Hill Park in Columbia, SC. This historic building is home to the AMROC (Associated Model Railroads of Columbia) club.

This is the first time we've met in Columbia in a LONG time, so we adjusted the format a bit to provide more of an informational "show and tell". We had 22 in attendance, and shared a great deal of info. Steve Todd gave his "High Tech, Low Cost DCC" presentation and demo'ed some of his gadgetry. Rich Lehman and Clark Gregory shared the history and vision of AMROC, then we adjourned downstairs to check out this intriguing set of layouts in various scales. After lunch, we toured Rich Lehman's excellent basement layout. Everyone indicated the meeting was time well spent.
