Why Join a Model Railroad Club?

Why would a person want to be a member of the Ozarks Model Railroad Association?  Are you wanting to get involved in model railroading but don't have space, knowledge, or time to build one?  Club members operate on a large, HO scale railroad under DCC control on a weekly basis.  Looking to gain knowledge of DCC, scenery, or model railroad operating methods?  We can help you learn skills which you are looking for, and you can share your skills with us.  We host seminars on a variety of topics on a generally bi-monthly basis.  Come, learn, and teach.  Above all, we enjoy friendships, and operating a model railroad together.
