As we do each year the NRMRC participated in the Train Collectors Association December show at the Scott Building, NC State Fairgrounds. A total of 15 members participated in the show.

The North Raleigh Model Railroad Club completed another successful show with the Neuse River Club this past weekend, November 5&6 2016. This year we resumed display of the Junior Engineer layout in addition to Both the N-TRAK and T-TRAK Layouts.

The NRMRC participated in the 2016 NMRA MER Convention held at the RTP Marriott with a T-TRAK layout featuring Apex. Since our Apex modules are a model of a prototype scene we were in the RPM (Railway Prototype Modelers) room.

Eight members of the NRMRC participated in our 2016 Selma Rail Day T-TRAK layout, which was located in Selma Station.

Based on the available modules our layout was L-shaped and measured 14.5’ x 12’. This was the first time our only layout was T-TRAK, and clearly it is the way we should continue in the future. The lower size is perfect for viewing by younger folks.

The 2016 Danville Old 97 Rail Days was held the weekend of September 23-25 in the Pepsi Building at the Crossing of the Dan in Danville VA. As usual it was sponsored by the clubs of the Eastern N Lines Partnership, with the Richmond Club (RANTRAK) being the layout coordinator. ENL had the full support of the Danville Science Center. There was also a TCA show located in the Community Market. Overall attendance in the Pepsi Building was about 400. There were approximately 40 ENL operators.

The North Raleigh Model Railroad Club along with the Central Carolina N Scalers participated in the Great Train Show in the Exposition Building at the NC State Fairgrounds the weekend of September 17 and 18, 2016.
