Division meets monthly, usually on the second Saturday of the month.  Each meeting typically includes a business meeting, a model contest, and a clinic or presentation about some aspect of model or prototype railroading.  Our usual meeting place is the St. Albans C&O Depot in St. Albans, WV.  Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.  The meeting site will be open and set up by 12 Noon.  Members and guests are welcome to gather for socializing at that time.  The business meeting will begin at 1 PM with the contest and clinic to follow. 

Please check this page regularly in case we had to change a date, time, or place.
