MODEL RAILROAD | TRAINS | OMRA | IMAGES
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.
A video shot by one of our layout owners at the Spring 2017 Train Show highlights many of the wonderful layouts at the show, including the OMRA modular HO gauge layout. Thank you Brian.
