We are motivated and focused to make Colorado Springs a center of excellence in the Model Railroading Community. The success is based on producing quality educational events and the effort of all those active in the hobby. We are committed to advertise aggressively throughout Colorado and the surrounding States. We are contacting over 200 clubs, associations, societies, all news media as well as any interested parties.
