IslandOps 2019, model railroad operating event

Post by nyandw »

You are invited to attend IslandOps 2019, the premiere model railroad operating event on Long Island, that will be held April 26 - 28, 2019. Registration opens tomorrow, March 2, at noon EST.

We have layouts that will appeal to just about everyone. They range from laid-back backwoods lumber hauling to intense Manhattan switching and everything in between.

New this year is a twilight session on Steve Gittleman's outdoor G scale layout. The session starts in daylight and ends in darkness. Running trains outdoors at night is a special experience!

Vinny Pellitteri's beautiful West Side Lumber Co. and Howard Dwyer's very detailed Island Central RR are also returning this year.

These are just three of the eleven layouts that you are invited to operate on.

Layout selection is on a first-come, first-served basis, so it pays to register early.

To register and learn more, go to our website:" onclick=";return false;

These are operating sessions held at various layouts stretching from New Jersey to the end of Long Island. Go to the website link and select "Layouts". You can sign up to operate at any of the layouts (assuming they aren't booked up)
