The Boomers

Serving the far NE portion of the Piedmont division, the Boomers are a group of modelers who gather for operating sessions several times each quarter. We have layouts (all Digitrax) and members in an area that roughly forms a triangle from Gwinnett County to Athens to Commerce.

We have no formal rules and no dues. It's not necessary to have a layout to participate, only the desire to come enjoy running trains. Although we try to operate like the prototypes, our operating sessions usually break down into three hours of laughter and ribbing each other. No problem if you don't have a lot of railroad knowledge--several in our group are former railroad employees and will show new operators the ropes.

If you would like to come and join us, or would like more information, email John Rieken at jrieken@windstream.net .
