? Pikes Peak Division NMRA Colorado Springs, Colorado

We're a "crafty" bunch. Among us, we have over two centuries of modeling experience! At each meeting we have a short business meeting, a break with refreshments, a how2 clinic or presentation, a drawing for door prizes, and a model contest. Check out the winners in the Milepost Newsletters. We also have a large HO scale modular railroad group. Many of our members are also involved in HOn3 and N scale modular groups. We try to put on two swapmeets a year.
