Clinics and More

Clinics are where you go to get advice and treatment for what ails… your modeling! The 4th Division knows that many individuals are timid about model building, thinking that they lack the skills necessary to build good models and railroad layouts.  For them, and for all its members, the Division conducts clinics in various geographic locations around the Division. We offer skills training, fellowship with other modelers, information exchange, and mentoring in the hobby. Members and guests are always welcome.

Clinics are held monthly from September through June. For locations, see below. The meetings typically last about two hours including a coffee break intermission. Speakers or other presentations are common.

If you're not a 4D member, we hope you'll attend as our guest. Use it to help you decide if membership is for you. We think you will!
