The Miami Valley S Gaugers (MVSG) is an
active S gauge modular club serving the Southwest Ohioarea.
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.
