Railroaders of Kingston (ARK) is a club made up of people who are
interested in model railroading. The club does not have a club layout,
thus allowing us to keep the club an informal association, free of
internal politics, major capital investment and the complications
inherent in hard rules or membership obligations. ARK makes up for this
by giving you the opportunity to meet people who have, or are building,
layouts, on which you can operate, work, contribute your skills or
develop your knowledge. ARK meets the second Tuesday of each month,
September to June (and sometimes in the summer) to pursue our interest
in model trains. Each meeting, organized around a dinner, presents an
opportunity to: meet others with similar interests; be entertained with
a Program presented by speakers on different topics of interest to model
What to do
with an old layout / model railway items
frequently contacted by people trying to find a home for an old layout
or model railway items. We have been able to find good homes for
many items given to us, including helping out some young people with
limited means get into the hobby. If you would like to sell items
yourself, you could rent a table at our annual train show, or if you
would like to sell items immediately, a local dealer, Kingston
Locomotive Works, does purchase items.
f you are
interested in having us find a good home for your items by giving them
to the club, please get in touch with Andy Chisholm at email@example.com.
If you are interested in selling to someone immediately, please get in
touch with Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org,
if you are interested in selling items yourself at our November show,
please get in touch with Paul Hunter at email@example.com
