Navigating this web site:
Notice the menu items on the top, the calendar, resources and member info. There's a lot of information there. Also you can use the search menu at the top right to find things you are interested in.
Note: there's a lot of information on the site, the SDGRS bylaws are posted, member's layouts, etc. Just "explore" a bit!
Things to do during Covid:
We have lots of newsletters from other clubs on our site, under RESOURCES, please log in (or get your login, see bottom of page)
Read some of the online magazines, like Steam in the Garden www.steamup.com
Take your rolling stock out and check your wheel gauge (cheap calipers can be had at Harbor Freight), lube the axles.
Make a little test track, or even 6' of track to check out your locos. Bachmann makes inexpensive "rollers" to let you run your loco in place.
Visit some of the forums online like www.gscalecentral.com, www.mylargescale.com
Check the Calendar!
With the shelter in place orders for San Diego, this months Open House is cancelled. Please continue to refer to the calendar for items.
As always, please check the Calendar to see the next meetings, open houses and events! Note that you can click on an event and get a map and driving directions and contact information.
If you have not renewed your SDGRS membership for 2020, you are no longer receiving newsletters, and you cannot access them from this site.
Sorry, but we work on a tight budget, just barely staying in the black funding raffles and the annual picnic. So the newsletter is for members only. The good news is that we are no longer in the red, but thanks to better money management, we are "holding our own".
