Wayne "Kent" Huffman

November 01 1938 - March 28th 2017

It's a new year and the club has been hard at work updating our layout. We have had one module out for over 13 months replacing all the turnouts with "Fast Tracks" units that we all had a hand in building. We have also installed "Tam Valley" servo switch machines. All the wirering has been looked at much of it has been updated. One of our members has busy replacing quite a few lamps with LED's, we still have a lot more to replace. We are looking forward to the new year, it is always a great time modeling on our layout and for many of us we also have home layouts. We are so fortunate that we are all involved with activities outside the club with our families such campouts and BBQ's. 

We provide our members with the opportunity to meet with fellow railway modellers, many of whom  may be working on their own individual projects ranging from a small apartment layout to large room with a railway empire. If you would be interested in joining our group or just interested in getting started in model railroading come and see us any Saturday at the Piccadilly Mall in Salmon Arm, looking forward to seeing you.

We are morning the lose of a good friend and a long time member of our club.

Wayne & club members on our way to Revelstoke in 2010

The Salmon Arm Model Railroad Association is a non-profit group dedicated to model railroading in all scales. We are located in the Shuswap in Salmon Arm British Columbia Canada. As of January 2010 the Salmon Arm Model RailwayClub became 100% NMRA

Over the years the Salmon Arm Model Railway Club has been very fortunate and proud to receive numerous awards. This is testament to the dedication of our past and present members, and to our commitment to the advancement of our hobby. We also take great pride in encouraging and welcoming new members of all skill levels to join and participate in our club activities, and to pass onto us the skills they have acquired. It is never too late or we are never too old to embrace new ideas and technology.

Christmas at the club 2010

Wayne was a soft spoken, kind and gentle person who would go out of his way to lend a hand to anyone he knew. He went out of his way to make everyone welcome who came to our club. Wayne wasn't the best modeler, but he was always willing and did whatever he could and above all he loved people & trans. Our condolences go out to Helen and the rest of the family for their loss, Wayne will be sorely missed by everyone.
