The Back Shop on a railroad is a shop where locomotives are repaired. The CID Back Shop is a place to get help with modeling problems or find "fixes" for situations on your model railroad. This can be help with any area of the hobby from the very beginning to advanced situations.

If you have been a model railroader for any length of time, you've undoubtedly added to your modeling skillset. Just as you have learned many tips and techniques from other modelers, we'd like to suggest you share those new skills with others who perhaps haven't been modeling as long. A great way to accomplish this is for you to give a clinic at one of the CID Meets. If you have questions, we have answers. Planning and presenting a clinic isn't that hard (really, it isn't), and help is available.
For more information or to volunteer, contact:
Clinic Chairman Bill Schoonmaker at
(812) 275-2211 (Home) or (812) 583-4270 (Cell),
