The Club has been
gathering momentum for the 2017 season. We've been working
on the calendar of events and activities since mid October.
Among the plans are is new module construction, refresh and
replacement of others, a group outing this spring to the Royal
Gorge and of course which trains shows we will be setup at in
2017. We've planned four shows in the first half of the
year along with other activities which we are announcing here.
Our first train show of
2017 will be the Rails In The Rockies train show in
February. The annual train show in Estes Park in
mid-February is still one of club favorite train show and great
weekend show at the foot of Rocky Mountain National Park. The
show is in a new and larger venue this year, Itís at the Estes
Park Event Center on the Stanley Fairgrounds you might recall
passing by as you come into Estes Park on Highway 36 from the
east. The club will be setting up a larger layout

2017 also marks the
18th official year for the train club, over the course of the
spring we'll be posting a series of articles here on the website
recalling even more of the club's 18 year history as part of a
"from the archive" feature. We also planned to update the
club website this spring which fell into some real disrepair in
2015 after some upgrades by the Club's website provider broke a
lot of the website content from publishing. We've resolved
all the issues and again this site should be a source or news
and activities for the club. The new website will also be
friendlier for tablet and mobile devices and easier to navigate.
We'll be sharing a preview of the new website in late May will
