Membership in the GEHAMS is always open!
We always welcome new members with any level of experience, all that is required is an interest in Model Railroading.
• The GEHMS enjoys an excellent reputation among the model railroad community in the Central Valley.
• We have a mature, well developed layout, that runs well. Having said that, we are constantly striving to improve scenery, modeling skills, and operations and we are also in the planing stages of a new, modern railroad.
• We have opportunities for both the beginner, who wants to improve his/her modeling skills, and the most advanced “contest quality” modelers. Many of our members have their own layouts, and a number are either planning or in the process of building.
• We hold clinics to help the beginners learn how to master the hobby, as well as organized visits to run on other model railroads in the Southern and Central California area.
And last, but certainly not least, we enjoy a wonderful fellowship that revolves around model railroading.
