Join a Fun Club!



The Desert Division is a very active division in the TCA. In addition
to our regular meets there is an annual picnic, holiday party,
layout visits and our open to the public swap meet in November that we call
"The Turkey Meet". We welcome all train enthusiasts and hobbyists, collectors and operators. Our members are friendly and knowledgeable and willing to share their experience and wisdom with their fellow members.
So check our calendar and stop by during one of our regular meets and visit a while. You can meet some nice folks, you can enjoy a coffee and doughnut and you might see some interesting trains.
