The club was formed in 1992. The club started our HO modular layout in 1993. From vote to first run was two months. The club set up first for the Thousand Lakes Convention in Grand Forks, ND. There were four corners and six modules at that time. For our last set up we were 20′ X 36′ running three tracks plus the center yard which is 16′ long. Eight feet of the yard are the bottom of the triple wye and ladder to 9 track. The other 8′ are 9 track wide yard. See the nine new pictures posted on the Club Photo page. We have two tracks with automatic block control so we can run two trains on both of them. The third track is analog or Digitrax DCC.
