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 wiring 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 camp outs 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 layouts to a 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.
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
Some changes are taking place at the Salmon Arm Club. We are in the process of upgrading our layout by adding a staging yard on the inside so we can turn the layout into more of an operating session by making up consists and also the ability to turn our engines around by installing a turntable. We are also in the process of construction two Free-Mo modules. They will depict a logging camp of the 40's and early 50' era.

Construction on both projects started in the spring of 2018 and has continued on through the summer. Now that we are back to our normal scheduled meetings we expect to be able to show the logging modules sometime in the spring of 2019. At least we should have all the electrical done by that time, and some more of the scenery. The buildings and detailing will take a bit more time to complete. As for the expansion of the main layout, it's in it's planning stage, but should be completed, we hope, sometime this winter.
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.
