Barbara Lange visits the Winnipeg Model Railroad Club on April 12

We have two great presentations lined up for our April meeting! First, we’ll have noted author Barbara Lange take us on a nostalgic trip down Manitoba's rich railway past. Barbara, author of Through the Window of a Train, will make a presentation about her new book, “Memories of the Moonlight Special and Grand Beach Train era”. Learn about the “beach trains” that took thousands of Winnipegers to Lake Winnipeg every summer.

Then we’ll have Rich Mahaney show you how to select industries for your model railroad. Rich will help you select industries for your layout through a systematic approach. You will learn how railroads service their customers and what types of rolling stock are needed for different industries. He will also provide examples of both prototype facilities and model railroads. 

The meet starts at 7:30PM on Friday, April 12, in the Tank Room at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard. Wheelchair accessible. The canteen will be open, and we'll have a 50/50 draw and our monthly model display. Not a member? Not a problem! Guests are always warmly welcomed!
