UPDATE: We regret to advise that the TT&TO Learning sessions on Mike chandlers layout have been canceled for this year due to some scheduling and conflict issues. However, Mike’s layout will still be available for regular operating sessions.

The Ops Coordinator will contact you directly once your name is received from the event Registrar to confirm your interest and formally sign you up. Layout preferences will be welcomed closer to the event dates. Not all layouts will be offered for both sessions and the list below is tentative until it is labeled FINAL. Should any session be oversubscribed, the Coordinator will employ lottery type strategies in combination with geographical proximity parameters to assign positions. Please ensure you are able to arrive 15 minutes before the session start time and can remain for the duration before requesting a position. The sessions generally last between 3 to 4 hours at the discretion of the layout owner. Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and guests are NOT permitted at these sessions.

Detailed information, locations and assignments for the layouts will be released to the attendees once the final layout assignments are completed by the Coordinator – usually about 7 to 10 days prior to the event. The particular layout that a registrant will operate on will be dependent on which layouts has been requested, the demand for each layout, and will be determined by the Operating Sessions Coordinator at his discretion

Please note that not all layouts featured on the VanRail site will be offered at RMM.

Any questions regarding the Operating Sessions can be sent to the Coordinator, operating sessions
however, all requests to participate must be done through the registration process.
