The D&R Railroad Train Trailer set up at one of our open houses. 

This was a video filmed by one of our club members Jonah Hemingway teaching us how to operate a JMRI manifest while following SB train 735.

On Thursday April 20 the Roark Valley Modular railroad Club from Branson visited the Ozarks Model Railroad Association in Springfield for an enjoyable evening of operating trains on the OMRA Frisco Central Division.  After finishing off a few pizzas we started the first northbound freight from Fort Smith Arkansas "on or about" the scheduled departure time of 7:15.  Each train had a crew of an OMRA member and a Roark Valley member to share the fun and navigate the operations process.  Manifests for each train listed the destinations and pickups of cars as the trains traversed the route between Fort Smith, AR and Monett, MO.  Five trains, two local freights each, north and south, and a northbound through freight were run during the evening.
