Buckeye Division

Our Mission:
To further the toy train hobby and to promote fellowship among our members.

The Buckeye Division of TTOS is based in central Ohio. The Buckeye Division is one of the 21 local divisions that comprise the Toy Train Operating Society, an international hobby organization with over 6,600 members worldwide (visit the TTOS Website at www.TTOS.org). Buckeye Division club meetings are held on a Sunday once a month on a rotational basis at members homes. The meetings consist of a short business meeting, viewing and operating model trains on members layouts, sharing information on model railroading and a meal. There are also other organized outings for fun and fellowship centered around railroading during the year. The Buckeye Division currently has 60 members. Annual division dues are $15.00 for 2-years (what a deal!) and National TTOS dues are $30.00/year. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in model railroading in all scales. If you are interested in attending a meeting, e-mail club Secretary Barry Reese for information.

Nationally, TTOS distributes a publication each month. Members receive the "Order Board" (a 40-page buy, sell, trade publication) and the "Bulletin" (a magazine featuring articles of interest to the toy train enthusiast, including: layouts, how to build, new products, old reprints, repair hints, etc.).

The Buckeye division keeps members up to date with a quarterly newsletter, "Terminal Lines" containing articles, details of upcoming events, notes from the board of directors,  and minutes from prior meetings.
