Kids Are the Future of Model Railroading

Welcome to our most exciting model railroad club just for kids. We've all read a lot these days about how to get young people involved in model railroading. We read it in all of the major model railroading magazines. One article says "Kids are the future of model railroading." Another asked, "How can we get young people involved in this hobby with all of the other things kids can do."

A lot of people are talking about it, but how many are actually doing something about it? It's not enough to just talk to kids about model railroading or take them to model train shows; we need to really get them involved and keep them interested in model railroading.

Well here is your opportunity, join the Youth In MRR club. Come to the TECO show and see what is going on and how much fun the kids are having. It is:

  • Challenging
  • Educational
  • Teaches Respect
  • Builds Self-Esteem
  • Strengthens Social Skills
  • Fosters Lasting Friendships
