- Fall Layout Tour -
This Layout Tour has been cancelled after discussion that many of our active CID membership just had an opportunity to tour 26 layouts in the CID area. We will wait until Spring 2014 to return to layout tours. One challenge in coordinating layout tours is finding quality layouts that are clustered in somewhat close proximity to allow guests to see as many layouts as possible with a minimum of travel. Our current knowledge of modelers who might be interested in layout tours runs in the number of approximately 50 layouts. We know that there are some of you model railroaders out there thinking that it is time to show off your layout and if you think that you are ready, please contact Steve Studley our CID Superintendent or Chuck Tuttle who is starting to recruit Layouts for the NMRA National Convention,
"HIGHBALL to INDY 2016."
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.
You have special techniques, talents, skills or knowledge! There is something that you know well that you can share with other modelers! We'd like you to think about giving a clinic at a Meet. We can help. For more information or to volunteer, contact:
Clinic Chairman Bill Litkenhous at (812) 414-2599 (Home) or (812) 272-1223 (Cell),
or the CID Webmaster Roger P. Hensley, firstname.lastname@example.org

In May of 1995, the first CID page went up to promote the MWR regional convention Indy 95. By May 24th, the first pages had joined it and the CID website was born. It has been on-line ever since. For your enjoyment, here are those first pages. Click Here
