2019 Visit to the RMCA

 I had been waiting to publicly release these two videos of the Railroad Model Club of Atlanta, in order to help traffic to their web presence, but with their website down, and time a ticking, I got the highball to go ahead and post these.  I will add their web presence once they figure out what they'd like to do.

Back in 2019, I had the pleasure of being allowed to visit the Railroad Model Club of Atlanta.  They've been written upon in magazines, but it was cool to see the actual layout, some of it dating back to 1937.

With me, I brought something they had never done before, a GoPro on a flatcar that allows for "cab ride" views.  I also attempted to take other videos, but we were all on short time, so I was only able to take one other video worth publishing.


Thanks to the club for having my friend I that warm summer day!
