'20s, '30s and Beyond module club -- new members welcome

Postby chdiecast » Wed Jun 22, 2016 4:34 pm

You can re-create history and have fun doing it. We are a group of model builders who have made a small version of the U.S. as it was from the end of World War I through the steam-to-diesel transition era.

Since forming in 1991, the club has earned many first place awards while displaying in the Southern California area. Each member builds a six-foot-long section (called a module) that is connected with others at public shows in convention centers and large halls.

There is no cost to join other than that of building your module. We are so informal that there are no club officers, no bylaws and no dues. All we ask is that your module be of a similar high quality as the ones already made. We can help you get started.

The club sets up at public shows in southern California about six times a year.

If you are interested, send us a message by clicking on the "Contact us" link on the club website: http://trainweb.org/20s30s/index.html . Just build a module, set it up at a meet and you'll be a member. You can also help out at events without being a member. This would give you a chance to meet us and see what we're about.

Charles,

Congratulations on being the first to post in the LA Division. While I am in the Arizona Division, I look forward to seeing photos / video what your club has created. Can you also post the dates for your public shows. so of us zonies get to the coast to cool down during the summer months and perhaps we could stop by during one of your public shows. The forum can be a wonderful medium to attract new members from within your division and perhaps even another division within the region.

Hi Frank,

Thanks for the kind words. The club's website, http://trainweb.org/20s30s/index.html, has a lot of information and photos — just click on any of the many topics along the right side of the page.

Event information is here: http://trainweb.org/20s30s/events.html

Not linked at the site is an 8-1/2 minute video showing our set up at the San Bernardino Railroad Days, including the arrival of ATSF 3751 under steam: https://vimeo.com/104869401 . The video shows the club when we were only modeling the '20s and '30s. Now we're including the steam-to-diesel transition era and have a slightly different name.
