President's Update
Welcome to the TCA-Heart of America Chapter web site!

This is your internet destination for all things to do with our TCA Heart of America chapter and model railroading in our area. We'll always have an updated meeting schedule, information about upcoming events, and other information that you ask for here for your review. We also hope to incorporate as much member input as possible.

Our member photo layout gallery is open so send Don Miller (olathedonm@aol.com) some pictures and any information about your layout that you would like to share.

Please email me at tcahoa@tcahoa.org to share any ideas you may have for the site.

The officers and board of directors of the TCA Heart of America Chapter would like to share with you upcoming plans for the rest of the 2017 calendar year. We feel that we have some interesting and fun events planned that we hope many of you will be able to participate in. Since many of the events are still in the planning stage, we can only offer approximate dates for those activities, but be assured that we will give you plenty of advance notice once plans are finalized. As always, if you have questions, comments or suggestions about any future chapter activities please contact one of your officers.
