April 2014 Meeting - Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Hello Utah Garden Railway Society!

Its now April and the snow has melted. Saturday (April 19, 10:00 AM) we will holding our monthly UGRS meeting at Paul Smith’s. His structures are all scratch built or kit bashed, and plenty of figures to look at makes his layout tell a lot of interesting stories. If anyone has items to show & tell bring them for presentation and sharing with the rest of the club. We would like to welcome a new member, Tim Fitch from Kaysville is joining us and looking forward sharing talents.

In addition, Lynn Nebeker still has plenty of club caps ($10.00 ea.) and I’m in the process of cleaning up the club roster and dropping names off that have not paid annual dues ($25.00). If you have a folding camp chair I suggest you bring it along, to guarantee your seating. read more ...

Hostler Model Railroad show 2014 - Tuesday, February 11, 2014
The yearly Hostler show will be on the 28th of February and March 1st and 2nd at the historical Union Station in Ogden, Utah. The show this year opens on Friday (2/28) 4:00PM to 9:00PM, and on Saturday from 9:00AM to 5:30PM, and on Sunday from 9:30AM to 3:30PM. UGRS will be on the second floor in the south end of the station (where we were last year). Second floor makes it a challenge for set-up and teardown, but it’s the only place they can put us that we can set-up and show-off our whole layout. This is Utah’s biggest train show and gives us lots of exposure. So be sure to bring your personnel trains, buildings, die cast models, and any other items to put on the modules that would be of interest to the public.

Also note that we will not be meeting on the third Saturday this month (February) due to the timing of this show. read more ...
