 about us 

Great River Valley System


GRVS is the Twin Cities, Minnesota premier N-scale club utilizing both the N-Trak and T-Trak standards. We exhibit in about 15 shows a year all over the Midwest. In addition, GRVS itself puts on two shows each year:

Westminster Train Show
Great Minnesota Train Expo

Join us at one of our meetings, meet the gang. The only requirement is a desire for railroading, small and large.

This Month's Meeting

January 11th

Next club meeting is January 11, 2016 at the Southdale Library - Ethel Berry Room @6:30pm. There was some interest in DCC set up of layouts. We will be going over some DCC basics of the club equipment and how to set it up and tear down at shows.

It the dues time of year. $25 continues the family membership and NTrak Newsletter for another year. We'll be collecting at the next few meetings, or mail it to El Presidente. Anyone want to become the Membership Coordinator? The position is open at the moment.
