April 2020 Newsletter and Updates

HI everyone!

I know everything is a bit discouraging right now, so I hope this update will allow you enjoy some trains and be distracted. The April 2020 Newsletter is now posted on the Newsletter page for members. It is filled with activity updates including a spring banquet cancellation/postponement. But there are other good things to enjoy.

Starting today through April 11, Kalmbach Media is ‘unlocking’ all of their premium web content for those who are not yet subscribed. This includes special content from Trains Magazine, Garden Railways, Model Railroader, and Model Railroader Video Plus to name a few. You can read more here.

Also, through April 6, USA Trains/Charles Ro Supply Company is having a special sale since the East Coast Large Scale Train Show was canceled. Be sure to check out the special sale here.

Lastly, if something would come up and you are in need during this time, please reach out let me or the leadership of the club know. If we can, we will help. God bless, Andrew
