Happy New Year and attention Florida visitors, “snowbirds” or permanent Florida residents, the TCA Southern Division has two Train Meets scheduled for you this winter in 2022. Both meets are open to the public. One meet is located on the East Coast and one is located on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Both locations have nearby beaches and other popular attractions.
