From 11/17 to 11/20 2016 we attended the International Modelrailroad Exhibition in Cologne, Germany.

We set up a little booth and presented a crossover on the US model railroading hobby on the four day lasting show.

Pit Karges' "First snow on the Highline" was our largest layout and covered Rio Grandes narrow gauge railroad in HOn3.  Alain Kap, MMR presented his "R.I.P. Car Service" a HO-Scale mircolayout with a footprint not lager than 70 by 30 cm. Third layout by Mike Holly, incorporated a fully operational N-Scale switching layout "Downtown Spur" on a 90 by 20cm footprint.

Beside the layouts Alain and Mike presented workshops covering techniques on how-to built/kitbash HO kits (Alain) and weathering techniques to add more realism to N-Scale rolling stock (Mike).

The NMRA.org website if finally back online.

The NMRA website was down for a week due to hardware issues at the company that hosts the website for us. After a complete replacement of the hardware, and the restoration of the website, the NMRA website is now functional.
 
If you have a problem getting to the website, the issue is likely that you need to "clear the browser cache" - this link will provide information on how to accomplish that task.
 
Thank you very much for your patience.

Just wanted to let you know that I updated the list of petitioners removing those who were not in good standing and adding the new members. I sent the list to HQ and they have verified that there are in excess of 50 members in good standing who have petitioned the BOD to form the European Region. This meets all the requirements set forth in the EHB and MBOD14021311 from the Mid Year BOD Meeting in Las Vegas. Therefore, a new region shall be formed as provisionally described in MBOD14021511 which is provisionally named the European Region. Nobby Clarke will be the Temporary Chair of the European Region. Congratulations!!!

Now, the real work begins.
