Welcome to the North Central Crossings Operating Sessions Web Page
The Convention Committee is proud to offer unprecedented opportunities to participate in a wide range of operating layout sessions. You will get six days of operating prior to the convention starting date. You will find the layout owners experienced in operating sessions and they are prepared to assist the novice attendee. You will gain immeasurable knowledge of operating, meet and learn from experienced fellow modelers and have fun in the process. Seasoned attendees are encouraged as well. Thanks for participating in the convention. We look forward to helping you have a busy and enjoyable time. Did I mention you will visit some of the best model railroads in the area?
WHEN: Operating sessions will run from Saturday Oct 26th thru Thursday October 31st to give everyone an opportunity to participate in an operating session and still have time to attend clinics and layout tours.
REQUEST AN OPERATING SLOT: Session placement is based on your Registration Number. Registrant No. 1 gets first choice, followed by Registrant No. 2, etc. You may sign up for as many operating sessions as you like. Your first choice will be given immediate consideration. Your second choice will be considered once everyone’s first choice is placed. This method will be used until all slots are filled.
Please use the form on this page to request your slots. Make sure to include your registration number. Requests for operating slots will not be taken after October 1st.
