Thanks to all who came last Saturday to our division meet in Fredericksburg. We had a great turnout of 38 including several from neighboring divisions. In addition, I want to thank our 2 fine clinicians and our 3 hosts for open houses. We will meet again in March in Lynchburg. Photos to follow!

I hope everyone had a good Holiday Season and picked up some new trains!! We are getting ready to have our first meeting of 2015 in just over a week. This meeting will mark the JRDs first return to Fredericksburg for a meeting in recent memory. I hope everyone is ready to get back into their trains. Paul Dolkos will discuss his new layout which has been in the hobby press and several members of the division have actually operated on with great enjoyment. Once you are inspired to build or finish your layout then Mike Garber will help you focus on a paint scheme to make those engines and cars look their best. Hope to see your there.
