While many people keep the model railroading hobby fires burning year-round, for others the hobby is more of a cold-weather endeavor. Spring and fall are the transition seasons, where trains are put up on the shelf and then taken back down five or six months later. Even the biggest names in the model railroading hobby magazine business optimize publishing schedules to focus on the colder months. But let's not be too quick to forget about the trains. We still have a couple of big family and hobbyist-oriented events in the Memphis area before things start to quiet down.
More information about these and other events can be found here. We hope you will make it a point to come out and support these excellent events.
