Would you like to host an operating session?

If you would like to host an operating session for Enduring Rails 2018, contact the SIG Activities Coordinator. I’d love to hear from you!

Layout Tours

There will be multiple self-driven layout tour opportunities during the convention, with layouts hopefully grouped so that a cluster of layouts can be comfortably visited in a 2-4 hour period from the convention hotel. Also, these self-guided tours provide a great opportunity to meet other modelers, and conversations in the car on the way to visit layouts frequently result in lasting friendships.

Attention Layout Owners!

If you have a layout and would be interested in showing it off during the convention, please contact Diamond Rails Forever 2019 layout tour chair Scott Inman at Please complete and return the Layout Tour Information Form for your layout’s description to be put on the website and the convention program.
