Looking for District 2 & 5 Trainmaster Volunteers

As we did not get anyone to run for the District 2 Trainmaster position, we are actively looking for someone volunteer to fill this position. You do not have to live within District 2, just the williness to serve for a 2 year term. 


Also District 5 Trainmaster has resigned  and so we find ourselves looking for someone to fill that position as well.


If interested, please contact Superintendent Jim Tatum by clicking on the Superintendent email address listed in the IVD Board members page.

Layout Module update!

We have about four 2x4 module sections that need rehabbed. If interested please contact Jim Tatum at or call 309-338-3622.


Also we are looking for scenery and track donations to finish these modules. We are needing Code 100 track, switches and any scenery material you might have laying around thats not going to be used.
