Monthly Friday Night Operating Session

On the Friday following Great Midwest Train Show (Please Check the Calendar Page for exact Date as this can vary), The Valley Model Railroaders of South Elgin will be running trains on the layout starting at 7:30pm. The public is invited to the club at this time. This is your chance to operate trains on the club layout. The Valley Model Railroad Club allows the public to run trains on the club’s layout during this time using DCC.

Again, please check out the Calendar Page for the exact dates of the operating sessions since most of the time it will be scheduled the Friday after the Great Midwest Train Show. We sometimes will add more operating sessions during a month or move an operating session due to scheduling conflicts.

Please note for those of you that have been coming in the past; we have been open most every Friday, but due to everyone’s schedule we have decided to change the official operating session to once a month. Fridays there is still usually someone at the club after 8:00 but it is not guaranteed.
