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 PCR convention registrants.

Signing Up

We are not yet accepting sign-ups, as the slate of layouts is still in the early planning stages. Details of the layouts open for operations and sign-ups are not expected to be available until sometime in April 2018. Keep checking the News & Updates page for updates and when sign-ups open.

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.
