Here are the notes on a few of the past and upcoming virtual meetings as supplied by George Sinos -

NMRA-X  is the "virtual convention" put together by Gordy Robinson and several other volunteers.  The most recent updated information is on the NMRA facebook group.  Membership is free.  The actual Live event is on the NMRA Facebook PAGE not the group.  You don't need to be a member of Facebook to watch.  In the future, the live events will be simulcast on the NMRA's YouTube page.  The clinics are recorded and posted on the NMRA YouTube page a few days after the live event.

The Opsig has been hosting weekly clinics via Zoom. Membership is not required.  Information on the live and past events is on the Opsig web page.  Events are recorded and posted on YouTube.  I'll just include the single link to the Opsig page. The descriptions and links to the individual events can be found there.

Our next Western Heritage Division NMRA meeting is scheduled for Saturday, October 2, 2021. This meeting will be held via Zoom. The meeting will begin at 9:00 and will last no longer than 2 1/2 hours.

The meeting number is 851-9220-8014. The password is WHDNMRA.


At this time we don't have a program or clinic planned for this meeting so we will just have our usual roundtable discussion of member's projects and layout progress.

As always, we are soliciting volunteers for a short presentation or clinic for our Saturday get-togethers  Please let us know if you want to show us your layout or if you have a clinic topic you would like to present at one of our monthly get-togethers, even this upcoming meeting.

Future Meetings - (Presentations and Clinics subject to Change)

NOVEMBER 6th: Zoom Meeting

DECEMBER 4th: Zoom Meeting
