    Happy Holidays Folks!

    My wife & I drove into town for two week holiday stay, but arrived the evening of the 20th… unfortunately, too late to come by the open house. Hope it was a success!

    Wondering if you can identify where in Flagstaff this week yet, that I might obtain some items for my “antique” Lionel train that I bring up every year to put around our Christmas Tree. I have found Flagstaff Hobbies online, but not sure if there are other resources. They are not open on Sun. & Mon. — so crossing my fingers they aren’t heading out of town themselves & will also try going there Tues. — but wondered if you know of any other vendors locally.

    We always are here during this time of year — and miss your “open/guest” Tues. meetings — which may not even occur during this time anyway, but hope to make it to Flagstaff one time “non-holiday” season & visit your layout that looks grand!

    I am also trying to purchase a pattern/plans to build a replica Flagstaff Station for my layout at home as well. And, Thanks for any response you might have at this busy time of year for everyone!

      Bob & Char,

      Come out to the club this Tuesday evening at 7pm. A few of us will be out there to talk trains. Map and directions are in the links on the blog page. The Fort Tuthill area is very dark, especially now with lights out for the North Pole Experience business being operated in one of the buildings. Also, I believe one of our members has plans for the Flagstaff station.

      Flagstaff Hobbies does not stock much in the store, very few train items and I do not believe anything Lionel. There are no other local sources for model railroad items.

    We have moved my elderly father to Flagstaff and are doing an estate sale in Tucson. Among his items are some old (vintage – not sure years or details, maybe 50s?) Tyco HO gauge trains, tracks, and misc items. Is that something that anyone in Flagstaff would be interested in? We could bring them up from Tucson. Not sure we would get their worth at an estate sale!

    • Ted says:

      Hi Leslie,
      Thanks for contacting us. I cannot really say if there would be interest in Flagstaff, as we would need very specific details on brands, etc. Tyco brand trains date to the 1970’s and have little resale value, they were produced for the starter train set market and lack a lot of detail. We get a lot of Tyco trains donated to us and we often give them away at train events. If you can shoot some digital photos of the collection and email them, we might be able to offer further advice.

    Hi!

    I’m a NAU graduate student currently in the process of creating a film project on the history of the Flagstaff Railroad and the impact that it created here in Flagstaff.

    I stumbled upon your website as i was doing research. I found your club interesting and very cool! I was wondering if you guys would mind if I stopped by at one of your meeting times to check out the club and who knows maybe you guys can also help me out with more information about the railroad here in town?

    Please let me know what you think, and thank you for your time!

    • Ted says:

      Hi Holly,

      Please do come out and visit us at the club at 7pm on Tuesday nights. Directions can be found at the links on the right side of blog page. Please note that there is new traffic circle between I-17 and Ft Tuthill. Just proceed around the circle to continue straight into the fairgrounds, and follow the road around to the right.

    Hi, there! I’m an HOn3 foamer here in Scottsdale. I work and run on Scottsdale park layout, as well as the SASME layout in Tucson. I’m interested in visiting your club, and would like to know if I could drop by this Tuesday, Feb 10 at 7 pm. Alternately, almost any other Tuesday would be fine with me.

    • Ted says:

      Chris,

      You are welcome to visit any Tuesday night at the club. Directions are in the links to the right of the blog page. Note there is a new traffic circle between I-17 and the fairgrounds, when you exit and turn right, you will need to go halfway around the circle and continue west into the fairgrounds. We need to update our map.

  7. Hello Flagstaff Model Railroad Club,
    Here is a link to the story that ran on your club last night on our NAZ Today newscast. Thank you for being a part of Northern Arizona’s only newscast.

  8. Eric Lundberg says:

    Hello!

    I have nothing to contribute beyond renewing old memories of the Flag MRC, and of the days it was known as the Northern Arizona Model Railroad Society. I was a member and officer in the 1960s at a time when the club nearly went extinct. I’m glad it survived. I was instrumental in fashioning the name Mountain Pacific and it was my job to obtain the first decals from Walthers. A box car decorated with those decals continues to serve on my HO Sandric & Lake Superior RR in Colorado Springs.

    It’s highly doubtful that anyone in Flag remembers me but the memories I have will be with me forever. I have accomplished a good deal since those days, but a highlight is still the Mountain Pacific.

    Hello,

    My name is Steven Rossi and I work at the Flagstaff Area National Monuments. This years is Walnut Canyon NM’s 100th year anniversary and we are celebrating it with a variety of events and activities. Since the railroad was significant in the history of Walnut Canyon NM, we were looking for some help with talks about the rail road around the 1850’s-1920’s. Also, we have a float of the canyon and dwellings that we use for parades in Flagstaff. After this July 4th we would like to see if you could build a model trail around it, we put it out at the visitor center, let kids and families run the train (like speed it up or slow it down) and have somebody from your organization talk about the history of the trains in flagstaff and its significance to Walnut Canyon (Visitors and such). Basically how it helped the town grow which also effected the canyon. That is the jist.

    If this interest you, I can be reached at 928-526-1157 ext 236 or steven_rossi@nps.gov

    Take care
    Steven

    Hello,

    My name is Steven Rossi and I work with the National Park Service in Flagstaff. We are celebrating our 100th year at Walnut Canyon National Monument with events and activities. We have an idea for an event/activity that involves highlighting the railroads involvement at Walnut Canyon. It includes using model trains at the monument. I would love to talk to you more about it. I can be reached at steve_rossi@nps.gov or 928-526-1157 ext. 236.

    Thanks

      Rob, we do not have any public events during your visit to Flagstaff, but I emailed contact information to you so that we can schedule a tour for you. — Ted F.

    Hello

    Myself and my family recently visited Flagstaff model Railway club on Tuesday open night to inquire about membership. We were graciously helped and recieved the information we sought, and on completion of the required form I am a little uncertain of where to send it, could I simply adress it to Building #3 fort Tuthill County Park or should I just drop or the application on a Tuesday night?

    Thanks Warren Clifford

  13. Ted says:

    Hi Warren, glad to have you aboard. You can certainly bring the form by the club on any Tuesday night. If you find that difiicult to do, I have emailed to you mailing address info. FMRRC does not have its own mailing address.–Ted

  14. Zach Fisher says:

    Hello, I was very interested in the club in th epast but life events at the time kept me away. I feel as if I’m free now and I was wondering if Tuesday the 26th (today) was a good time to stop by?

  15. Mary Highline says:

    Hello, I am wondering if anyone who can read this might be interested in some old magazines. They are “Model Railroader,” “Toy Trains,” and “Electric Trains” to name a few. All of the magazines are from the 1950s. My father was very much in to model railroads and collected these magazines throughout the years. I thought someone out there might nostalgic, or maybe you could hand them out at the fair… I don’t know. Hoping to find a home for them other than the dump.

    • Ted says:

      Hello Mary, we could certainly give them out at the fair. If you can, drop them off at the club building on a Tuesday night at 7pm, or on Saturday August 6 after 9am (we are having a work day that day.) Thanks!
