2017 Fall Meet

The RLS Fall Meet will be held the weekend of October 27th through October 29th. Hopefully we'll have cooler weather by then so come out and enjoy a weekend of running trains. There will be a Pot Luck dinner on Saturday at 6PM so bring a dish to share. For pictures from past events click here.

Boiler Inspections

If you don't remember the last time your boiler was inspected, now is the time to have it done. ALL boilers not inspected in the past 12 months must be inspected before they will be allowed on the track.
