Layout Design / Operations Special Interest Groups
The Layout Design (LD) and Operations (OP) Special Interest Groups (SIG) will host a SIG clinic track Thursday on layout design and operations, open to all convention registrants, followed by an evening of LD and OP SIG roundtable discussions.
These clinics and meetings will all take place in the "SIG Room" (Fremont A). Operating sessions will be held on several model railroads in the San Francisco Bay Area for those attending the Rails Across the Bay Convention. Novice or first-time operators are especially welcome to participate. Experienced operators will be available to coach and assist.
The Layout Design SIG's prime purpose is to help modelers design and build a model railroad to enhance future operations with minimum space and cost, while avoiding common design flaws, and include prototypical and model design features that maximize operating interest and visual interest.
The Operations SIG is devoted to furthering the simulation of prototypical operating practices by using the forms, procedures, communications, and train schedules on model railroads.
Members of other NMRA SIGs are welcome to participate in Rails Across the Bay 2009 and encouraged to contact the SIGs Activities Chairman.
Seth Neumann, SIGs Activities Chairman
