Fall 2023 Division Meet

When:  October 14, 2023
Where:  Northgate Baptist Church

We had a great meeting, with 43 in attendance. Dave Winans shared an interesting clinic on making rocks from ceiling tile, we reviewed the recent hands-on clinics and discussed the recent and upcoming NMRA conventions. We had great participation in the contests, (photo, favorite model and tips/techniques), and got to tour 2 excellent layouts (see photos). We also had excellent sales of our polo shirt and hats.

Columbia Area 2023 Division Meet

Our Summer 2023 meeting was a big success! It took place on  June 10, 2023 at AMROC, 1800 Lincoln Street, Columbia, SC.
The AMROC folks again provided us with an excellent venue for the meeting, and shared their many model railroads with us after. They are impressive in their willingness to share our hobby with others.
Rich Lehman provided a very interesting clinic on "Nearby Excursion Railroads". His slides are available here: [here]

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!
