If so SCLS in Wilson park maybe a place for you.
Many people may think this looks like a expensive hobby or something that takes a degree in engineering but that is not the case.
SCLS has a few different types of memberships available.
There is no need to buy the expensive equipment. SCLS has equipment available for members to use ones they have been probably trained.
When property trained this equipment is fairly easy to operate and is just a ton of fun.
-If you are interested SCLS and would like more info you can:
-email the President
-Come out to one of the days we are giving train rides take a train ride, look around, and talk to one of the volunteers.
You can just stop by on any Tuesday morning and talk with the crew and see if this is something that will work for you.

*** We are a small group and we are always looking for some help. Please take some time and check out this website. If you find it interesting, consider volunteering and becoming a new member at SCLS. As with any group, it doesn't always work out for everyone. if you like trains, DYI projects, if you're retired looking for something fun to do you can share with your faimly, need an interesting way to get your commuity service credits for school then SCLS may be the place for you.
You don't have time? Well, maybe just passing along some nice input to the right person about SCLS can help. SCLS is a large facility and we can always use material donations or a commuity service day. New and used items are always welcome if its something that helps with our facilty or to help with one of our community events. We are always trying to add new items or upgrade existing items to keep the train ride interesting.
