We are a group of people in the greater Fort Myers, Florida area who are interested in Model Railroading.  We have among our membership people with a wide range of experience in modeling, from beginners to Master Modelers.  We are constantly working to improve our HO, HOn3 and N Scale layouts. We are always open to new members.
General Club Meetings:
General Club Meeting 4/8/2023

Hurricane Ian Update:
Several members had storm damage.  Roof leads repaired.  Increasing the size of the AC ducts from the system on the roof to the ducts in the building have made a big difference.  Next we will increase the fan speed when the shrouds are installed.  Still some gutter and down spout work to do.  New metal AC shrouds on order.

Looking ahead to 2023.
