We have monthly events all year round, from our monthly meetings to our Fall Train Show, Spring Flea Market and special events. Our regular meetings rotate around the city, typically 2 pm on the 2nd Sunday. See this link for archived reports on our May 2018 Cincinnati Express Convention.

You are cordially invited to our next
regular Cincinnati Division 7 meeting on

Sunday, August 8 at 2 pm
100% Virtual via Zoom

Our August event will likely be our last 100% virtual meeting. Special guest and noted modeler, author and photographer Bernard Kempinski will share a fascinating multi-scale clinic entitled “Railroads of the Civil War”. Afterwards, John Burchnall will share layout photos one last time in lieu of physical layout tours.

We'll also conduct our monthly contest, for the last time virtually, using submitted electronic photos of either models or the real thing. The contest topic is Tank Car. As before, the contest submissions and voting will be conducted in stages during the week prior, via email and our website, and the results will be shared live during our virtual meeting. See Contest tab for details. See Company Store tab for our latest merchandise offerings and HO scale car kits.

Instructions to access the meeting & contest will be emailed twice to Div. 7 members during the week before the meeting. See attached for those meeting and contest procedures. Read and print a copy of the Zoom Quick Guide.
