We CONTINUE to need your help. There continues to be a shortage of club members able to work at the mall on Saturdays.  We especially need help from 3-6 PM. Come by one Saturday for training and to get a key. Let Chuck know when you are able to help. Bring your friends to come to see our “G” Gauge model railroad club layout and bring your trains to run at the NORTHWEST MALL. We are open  every Saturday from 1-6 PM. We are in the Northwest Mall on the southwest side of the Mall at the entrance ‘B’ next to the old Macy’s.

There are now more news letters on line 

Now for your viewing pleasure (and down loading or printing or both)  club news letters from 2005 to the present on line.  More to come soon. Still missing some, if you have a copy of Jan-Feb 2003 issue #71, Mar-Apr 2003 issue #72, May-Jun 2003 issue #73. Also missing some from 2002 and 2001. 

Aristo Craft replacement parts

Here is a place to get some of the parts you may need. They are from Canada so the prices are Canadian. I orders some hub covers for my evans box cars so I can see those hubs spin, see the Build and Repair page. Give a look at this page and see what you need and it never hurts to ask for items not shown, I already did.  And wow I got an answer back quickly, service is king at GLX and I will be getting my other parts.

I got my hubs and some side steps and I'm very happy with the quality. I ask about a horn and was told I could send one and he would see what he could do. I will keep you up to date with the horn. But look at what parts he.
