Swap tables – Swap tables will be available for NMRA members and Flyer subscribers.

Photo Display – not a contest, bring any RR related display that you would like to share.

From the workbench – Please bring something to share. It does not have to be a finished product or anything approaching a ‘perfect’ model. A technique that you have tried and liked or did not like, a review of a kit or RTR structure or rolling stock. Almost anything that has been on your workbench.  This is more of a focus on what model RRing have you done.

Favorite Train – Bring a favorite train and get a free subscription to the Flyer. Certificates will be awarded for first second and third place by popular vote. Bring a train and save some money.  It does not have to win, just get entered.

We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting!


The Silver San Juan Division is organized under the auspices of the Rocky Mountain Region of the National Model Railroad Association. It serves the southwest section of Colorado and the northwest section of New Mexico including the towns of Dolores, Durango, Cortez, Bayfield, Pagosa Springs, Farmington, Bloomfield and Aztec.


The purpose of the Division is to foster the growth of model railroading in the Four Corners area by bringing together model railroaders, and those who might be interested in the hobby, to exchange ideas, and to see what others are doing. In addition, the Division promotes membership in the Rocky Mountain Region and the National Model Railroad Association.


The Division meets in Bayfield in the fall, Farmington in the spring, and Cortez in the summer. The meetings offer the opportunity to expand knowledge, improve skills, and enjoy model railroading.  We are lucky to have member layouts in N, HO, S, O, and G scales all the way to large scale 7-1/2" gauge.  Members are also involved in full scale railroading of the region.
