San Diego Division Zoom Meet

  • Show & Tell (30 minutes: 3-5 minutes for each person): Holiday Modeling Contest. Since we can’t get together to celebrate the holidays as we have in the past, this year we will host a Holiday Modeling Contest.
    • It doesn’t have to be one of these subjects, but you get the idea. There will be prizes in several categories like best train, best scene, funniest, most creative. The popular vote from attendees will determine the winners who will receive their prize in the mail. Make something fun during the quarantine and win a nice prize. Here are some ideas to get you thinking.
      • Create & photograph a winter scene
      • Create & photograph a holiday train
      • Recreate & photograph a scene from your favorite holiday train greeting card
    • Please email Ryan, our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and provide your Show & Tell idea. 
  • Layout Tour: The December virtual layout tour will feature Dan Lewis' N-scale layout which follows the prototype of the North Montana Line of the Milwaukee Road in central Montana in the fall, 1953.
    • The basement layout is 18x25' and not only depicts the actual railroad, but operations are a regular part of a round robin group of modelers in the NCR (north of Detroit).
    • Dan is probably the most prolific N scale author in the hobby, with over 100 articles in the model press.
  • Clinic: "Just Roofs," by Dan Lewis which will feature different roofing styles, materials, modeling, and finishing effects (useful in all scales).
    • Dan's work was most recently published in Model Railroader magazine (June 2020), Railroad Model Craftsman (August 2020), NMRA Magazine (October 2020) and the new NMRA Calendar (2021).
    • A few years back, one of his photographs was deemed among the 10 best photographs in Model Railroader Magazine history.
