About the Mid-South
Division
    Welcome! The Mid-South Division is located in the Northern tier of Alabama counties between Mississippi and Georgia, with the Southeastern corner dipping down to Gadsden, AL and the Northern border extending up to Fayetteville, TN. There are approximately 40 members spread throughout the Division, with most of the members living in the Huntsville area.

    The division meets the first Saturday of each month at the Decatur Union Depot, 701 Railroad St, Decatur, AL. The meetings begin at 9:30A.M. We usually have a short business meeting followed by a clinic of general interest to the membership and an operating session on the Decatur Union Depot layout.

    This year we have had presentations on Speed Matching Locomotives, multiple 3-D Printing clinics, a resin Castings and Moldings clinic and a Modular Layout Construction presentation.

    Our efforts in support of the Decatur Union Depot Museum were recognized by the Decatur/Morgan County Tourism Bureau with the Good Neighbor Award. The museum, with its Division supported layout, has become a key attraction for visitors. The layout’s 90% scratch built structures were built and donated by Division members. Operating sessions following our monthly meetings are attracting 75-135 visitors.

    The Division Layout Committee is assisting the Depot Museum to set up an outdoor G-Scale layout on the passenger platform adjacent to the observation deck. A portion of the effort will be an Eagle Scout project.

    We are happy to report that following the lead of the Piedmont Division, we have awarded our first one-year youth membership.
