Do you run or participate in operating sessions anywhere, and where?
NO. Only a temp circle of track here now for testing. Dont belong to any clubs.
Cannot think of a good reason for me to participate in an operating session. Nothing wrong with them, they sound fun and a challenging. But I get all the fun and challenges I need making things that work and look decent.:thumb:
Uh, maybes someday after my layout is completly the way I want it to be...
I am still working on my layout. I am now paving streets, roads however sidewalks are completed. Buildings are assembled but not all of them are completely painted or weathered. No trees, grass, etc.
So I am quite content sticking to my home layout. I can run all my trains as the layout industries are all constructed. The track is very reliable and operations are a lot of fun for me.
My layout is free lance but typical of the real railroads.
I don't anticipate joining any club. Been there and done that with other hobbies and it is just not my style. That is why I choice FREE lance!
I run,both at home and with the group.At this point though I don't operate.I've been to a few opps sessions around here and that ain't my kind of fun.
Strictly a home operator. I use car cards and run until something else takes me away. I pick up where I left off next time. Layout is incomplete but I have three towns with 19 industries, so that keeps me occupied. Nearest club is a modular club that only sets up at train shows.
I run at home onl;y too. Maybe some day I'll check out a club.
AT home and also at The Western Reserve Model Railroad Museum.

Don't yet run at home...
But I do run with a couple of groups. The Friday Night Group has a blog too:
Layout? Don't need no stinkin' layout. I'm an Ntrakker. We run anywhere.
All of my running is away at modular set ups right now. I am going to build a switching layout in a spare bedroom, but we are getting ready to do a couple of room additions to our house. It looks like I won't have a spare room until the work is completed.
