Each SIG will also hold a "Meet and Greet" roundtable discussion Thursday evening. ALL convention registrants welcome!

  7:00 PM LDSIG Meet and Greet
  8:30 PM OPSIG Meet and Greet

Prototype Operating Sessions

All Enduring Rails 2018 convention registrants are eligible to participate in Prototype Operating Sessions. These sessions are offered with the intention that many who normally do not participate in these structured operating events will take advantage of this open enrollment.

No previous operating session experience is necessary, just a desire to run a model railroad as if it were a real transportation system. This is not a special club or special interest group (SIG) event. It is open to all convention registrants.

Sign-ups Not Open Yet

Sign-ups will open sometime in mid-March 2018. Keep checking the News & Updates page for updates.

The SIGs

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 Daylight Express 2018 and encouraged to contact me if interested.
