Prototype Operating Sessions

Everyone registered with the Diamond Rails Forever PCR/FRRS Joint 2019 Convention is eligible to crew the prototype op sessions listed below. You may sign up for as many op sessions as you wish. List the layouts in order of preference since you may not get your first choice. Specify how many total op sessions you wish. First time and beginning operators are welcome and expected.


Layouts and schedule TBA.

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.
