The Miami Valley S Gaugers

The Miami Valley S Gaugers (MVSG) is an active S gauge modular club serving the Southwest Ohio area.  The group currently has around 35 members, both AF collectors and operators, and S scale modelers.  There are usually about 12 attending any given meeting.  Many of the members' spouses are active in the group.  The club was formed in 1985.  After hauling modules around in our cars for many years, we eventually bought a small trailer, and later upgraded to a larger trailer.  We are also incorporated.  We generally meet once a month, rotating the meeting place among the members' houses, except for those months when we are setting up at a show.  At these home meetings we generally have a small business meeting (although every three years the Spring S Spree starts to dominate the meetings!), eat the good snacks our hosts provide, and visit among ourselves.  Several members have active layouts which we "run" (currently no one is holding realistic operating sessions), and several have AF equipment on display which we drool over!  Occasionally a member will present a seminar or hold a sale of excess equipment.  Often a railroad video tape is shown.  Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.

Current club officers:

We are always interested in adding new members.  Dues are a mere $10.00 per year.  See us at one of our shows, or contact one of the members listed above.
