The eleventh annual Model
Railroading University, sponsored by the Carolina Southern Division, National
Model Railroading Association, was held on Saturday January 21, 2017. We had
model railroaders who came from far and near to learn how to enhance their
enjoyment of The World's Greatest Hobby. Our clinicians offered courses
beginning with Basic Model Railroading all the way up to how to use
microprocessers (arduinos) on your
railroad. Two NMRA Master Model Railroaders were also on hand to teach and answer questions.
For the second year, the CSD was blessed to have the facilities of Christ the
King Church available
for our use.

miltimeters, and hundreds of smaller items have
been packed up. Tables have been folded and put away, lights have been turned
off and doors locked. RMU 2017 is over and by all accounts, it was a success.
Success in that some people learned, some people taught and some people formed
friendships that will last for years.
