NEXT (Correction from original post!!) Saturday April 27
We have a group that meets in NE Ohio, about every month. We started last November after a Jeff James' post in Fall 2018. Since that initial meeting we have met several times, each with the following format:
- Local group member sets up
- breakfast at a restaurant chosen by the local member
- topic at breakfast group discussion
- tour or visit to a layout or other site
NEXT Saturday April 27 - NE Ohio O Gauge Group meets at the Manhattan Deli Willoughby Hills location:
Manhattan Deli Bar & Grille 34601 Ridge Road Willoughby, Ohio 44094
Then, from there we will go to Bryan Persing's home to see his layout- a modern-age setting, and some learning about weathering and detailing buildings. Bryan runs full-1/48th scale equipment on 072 and larger curves, different than my layout. I run smaller, traditional equipment and largest curve is 072.
What we have done so far: table below

You might consider joining up with our OGR Forum NE Ohio group. Send me an e-mail- email@example.com, and I'll send you some information.
Our group is turning out JUST the way the majority wanted it starting last November-
- not a REAL club, no organization, just breakfast talk and look-sees.
- a look at different aspects of the hobby. MANY ways to enjoy O gauge!!
