T.T.O.S. Southwestern Division is not associated with the Toy Train Operating Society
The T.T.O.S. Southwestern Division's purpose is to further the hobby of operating and collecting toy trains through the sharing of knowledge and fun with our fellow members
Our club promotes the hobby through multiple programs including organizing and holding monthly train meets at the Masonic Center in Arcadia, Ca. At these meets, toy trains are traded by the membership, there is an auction held, there are operating layouts and model train displays, there is also a train repair clinic. Any persons seeking out information or help with toy or model train layout design/setup, toy or model train restoration or advice can meet SW members who can help. There are also sellers who can assist with toy train parts needs. The camaraderie of other operators/collectors is something special that is enjoyed at these train meets.
T.T.O.S. Southwestern Division members have developed and constructed a large portable operating train layout which is displayed at various locations throughout Southern California during the year, as well as at our monthly train meets in Arcadia. We also hold an annual summer picnic for the membership and their families, each August at the Los Angeles Live Steamers (LALS) in Griffith Park.
T.T.O.S. Southwestern Division was founded in 1966. The T.T.O.S. Southwestern Division was incorporated in 1985.
Southwestern keeps its members up to date with a quarterly newsletter containing articles, photos, and details of upcoming events.
