Our Dean of
the School has acquired a bevy of outstanding clinicians who will be

modelers of all ages for the upcoming session. Be sure to check out the

It is a place
to discover the fun of model railroading. You do not have to be an NMRA member
to attend; the event is open to the public, but registration is required. Master Model Railroaders and just
'Plain Ole Modelers' conduct clinics (short classes in 'university speak')
and hold demonstrations (labwork in 'university speak') about the various
aspects of model railroading. Our mission is simple: To provide a venue where
modelers, from beginners to experts, are introduced to:
1) New concepts and techniques which will assist them in taking their
layouts and models to a higher level, and;
2) Fellow modelers who will become friends and mentors.
