Welcome to the Toy Train Operating Society’s New Mexico Division website.
Saturday and Sunday November 20 and 21 at the Sid Cutter Pavilion, International Balloon Museum, Albuquerque, NM from 9 am to 5 pm the Rails Across the Rio Grande (RARG) will be having a model train swap meet. (see directions page)
Welcome to our website! It contains information about Division events, pictures, links to various train web sites, documents(how to), train videos, applications to the local Division as well as the national organization. If you have a question or concern about this site, please email the webmaster.
We are very diverse group with members from all walks of life and interest as well. Most of our members operate three-rail “O” gauge trains (like LIONEL) or two-rail “S” gauge trains (like American Flyer). These are from all periods – prewar, post war, and modern. We have swap meets where you can buy, sell, or trade train items of almost any type imaginable. At the swap meets, hotels, conventions, and other events you will most certainly have the pleasure to see our “O” gauge operating modular train layout that has won many award recognition’s at various shows. You will also get to meet the members of the Division who are great train enthusiasts.
The Division also does charity work around the state and has done Christmas shows at the Presbyterian Children’s Hospital. We built a train set as part of the Make-a-Wish Foundation here in Albuquerque, NM. The layout, designed to be operated by a differently-abled boy was sponsored, designed, and built by members who volunteered their time, materials, knowledge, trains, engineering, craftsmanship and spirit to make this wish come true. We are always open to new projects of this type.
We also welcome toy train hobbyists to join the TTOS, our local division and to join our activities (see our events page). Please see our documents page for applications to the Toy Train Operating Society and the New Mexico Division.
