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 1 PM.  Members and guests are welcome to gather for socializing at that time.  The business meeting will begin at 2 PM with the contest and clinic to follow. 

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