Operating Layouts

The York Train Meet is a great place to get ideas for your layout and see what others are doing!

We invite several local train clubs to come run trains at the event.  View our Operating Layouts page for a list of clubs in attendance.

Thinking Outside the Train Box!

What are you doing to recruit new members to the Train Collectors Association? Did you know that inviting a guest to attend the York Meet is the fastest way to increase the association membership ? Consider inviting a guest to the York Meet because we think they'll like what they see and want to join TCA to continue attending the meet. Invite more than one guest because there is no limit on the number of guests you may bring.
