<<< Board for 2017
Sponsors For those individuals and local businesses that would like to assist our programs and realize some advertising as a significant return benefit, we offer "Sponsorships" at $50 per year. For that amount, we will make an attractive plate displaying your company name, address, logo, photos - anything you want on it. We display these plates on our Sponsors Board at the Otto Allen Building at the Citrus County Fairgrounds, where it is seen by visitors to the Fairgrounds flea market every Friday and Saturday, and by visitors at the Citrus County Fair for a full week. During the Fair alone, we typically host between 5,000 and 7,000 visitors. Our Sponsor Board is shown in the photo at left (click to enlarge).
HO Signups for Saturday Duty:
Membership in the Citrus Model Railroad Club is open to anyone 18 years of age or older with a genuine interest in model railroading. To be considered for membership, you must have attended at least 3 meetings within a three month period prior to making application. These three meetings may include the monthly program meetings and weekly work or operating sessions, and must include the program meeting at which the application is presented to the membership for vote. Membership begins after an affirmative vote by the majority of members in attendance and payment of dues and fees. Dues are currently $60 annually and there is a one-time New Member Assessment of $100 to help pay for the extensive renovations made to the club house (Otto Allen Building).

2017 Board of Directors
We continue to update this site, so . . .
Come Back Often!
First Tuesday evening of each month @ 6:30 p.m.
in the Horticulture Bldg on the Citrus County Fairgrounds
October 3rd - The program for the October meeting will be a round table discussion on our personal beginnings in model railroading. This program was scheduled for September but was canceled due to the power outage.
November 7th - In addition to our annual election of officers, rumor is we will have another opportunity to hear more about how John Giammasi designs and builds his amazing scratch built structures. More details to follow.
December 5th - Oops, the election will be held in November not here in December, as stated earlier. I'm sure there will be a very interesting program to finish out our year!
Finalized 2017 Meeting Topics
The public is invited!
The Citrus Model Railroad Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing its members' and the public's knowledge and enjoyment of railroads and model trains. The Club provides education and fellowship to the public and to other modelers, as well as the opportunity to learn modeling techniques and assist in the construction and operation of the Club's several model railroad layouts.
<<< Try It!
All three layouts are open to the public every Saturday morning (except during August) from 8:00 a.m. until Noon. All three club layouts are running during that time and club members are present to answer questions. These open houses are held in connection with the Flea Market also held at the Fairgrounds at that time. There is no charge for admission to the railroad displays but donations are always appreciated.
