While the NCOG members do not run trains at Fremont Public Library in November,
and even though there is a book sale, members of the club journey to Milwaukee for Trainfest.
If you have never been there, and you like trains, this is the place to see lots and lots of trains.
Here is a link for information and directions to Trainfest.

Our next Train Run at Fremont Public Library will be on December 13th,
with the layout decorated for the Holidays.

Photos of engines from past runs can be found in the NCOG Photo Gallery,
as well as photos of our favorite junior engineers, including some recent postings.

Members, remember to check out the "Portal" in the side bar for members only information.

And have you looked at the Internet Links page, and under "A-Z Links Trains", found the quick links to Live Video Train cameras? Any favorites there?

In August of 2013, the Mundelein Fire Department brought their retired engine #1 over the Fremont Public Library for interested kids and parents to go for a ride through some of the local streets. Larry F. brought his camera along to record a bit of that activity. Larry graciously offered to share the pictures and they may be seen here.

In early November, club members were invited to get together for the club's annual meeting. Those who attended had a great time, good food, and good comapany. Larry remembered to bring his camera and took some pictures of the attendees which you can see here.

One of our members posted a video of his Southern Crescent Limited running on the club layout. A link to his YouTube page can be found near the bottom of the Train Video page. Check it out.

Some changes have been made to our Internet Links page. Check out the changes here, and especially check out "From A-Z Trains to Tracks, Magazines and Parts". Some new web camera links have been added at the bottom of the page.

Lionel LLC has been doing some work to make understanding how to wire your layout a little easier. You might want to check out their website for more information or click here.
