2020 2-DAY CLINIC SCHEDULE: 
 
The 2022 program continues our long tradition of offering timely clinics designed to improve each student’s modeling skills.  Building on this tradition, we are introducing each of our students to the latest developments in model railroading.  Every participant is free to choose any of our clinic offerings for each of our time slots.  An independent work area will be set up for any student who wishing to continue working on a project after their lesson.   ALSO, in past years, people wanted to see more of the clinics offered during the 2-day schedule.  In an effort to make these clinics available to more folks, some clinics are repeating themselves so that you can get to that clinic that was offered at the same time as that other clinic you wanted to attend!
