Congratulations to all NCMRS members whose hard work throughout 2014 made the award a reality.
Next Saturday, 3/14, we start the major upgrade to the Trains for Kids room and so it will be out of action for about a month. We hope to have it working again by mid April. The main layout is coming along and we do have some limited trains running when we are not working on the track. Please stop by and see the progress.
Please note that we will be upgrading the Trains for Kids room soon. If you are going to visit please check back here to be sure we have not started and that the layout is available.
