Thanks for your interest in the Tehachapi Loop Railroad Club (TLRC).
The club has several train displays (Train Shows) that are set up throughout the year for the public to view the club members’ model trains. Typically, there is a spring extravaganza in April, a show in mid-Summer, and our last show of the year is usually in late fall. We operate a large HO scale layout, plus G Gauge, N scale, and a Toy Train (American Flyer, Lionel, Marx, etc.) layout. When not operating our layouts, we try to schedule events/trips throughout the year that relate to real trains. Whether it is going to a train show, chasing real trains, or visiting a historic train site, these events are designed to be a social interaction amongst the membership.
Our monthly business meetings are held at Kelcy’s Restaurant (110 West Tehachapi Blvd, Tehachapi, CA 93561; phone 661-822-4207) on the second Saturday of each month. The meetings start at 10 am. In July, the monthly meeting is called a Crew Change Dinner where newly elected club officers are installed; the location of this event varies. In addition, for the December meeting, the club hosts a Holiday Dinner. Last but not least, we have a monthly newsletter that is e-mailed to all members. This newsletter includes the minutes from our last meeting, any up-coming events, and railroad-related articles submitted by our members.
Our dues structure is as follows:
Single membership $40.00 per year
Family membership $70.00 per year
Our dues are paid annually. Regardless of which dues structure you select, there is a one time $10 initiation fee that must be included in your initial dues payment.
