I am looking for anyone interested in helping out with my 3 rail layout that I have in progress in my lower level in my home. I sent a message to the club messages and I have not got a response I live in waseca Minnesota and am looking for a modeler that maybe interested in running there trains that they do not have a place to run there trains If there is anyone in a close distance that would reach out Thanks Ron Stevens [email protected]
A friend of mine told me about your place. I am always looking for another source for my model RR.
Cooper brought me here. Thank you for being his favorite place.
I bet their are a lot of us working on our railroads no matter the scale. I've been at it every day till one day I just had to take a little break but it seems around my place, something is always happening these days! I've been making videos to help raise spirits, something we all need a little of. Thought I would share this one. Have a great day!
Thank you, all our loyal visitors. We hoope to improve communication and connection on this site during this stressful time. Take Care! Oscar, President TCMRM
Todd Hein I'm not done yet I have a few others. Here is another one from my channel.
I will be posting a few videos that I made at the Twin City Model Railroad Museum, These are from my Epic Marx Trains Videos YouTube channel. Here is the first one.
I attended this with my grandson on Saturday night! The display is such fun for people of all ages! Visually mesmerizing. This was our second year to visit and we already made a date to come back next year!
Travel back in time to around this same time 30 years ago. This video shows you an example of what the old Bandana Square location looked like in early 1989.
The Great River Valley System group is looking forward to having our T Trak setup in the conference room this weekend! February 19 and 20!
