How to Get the Most From Your Club Membership 

Connect With Your Club Coordinator 

The Train Collectors Association is divided into local Divisions for different regions of the United States and beyond. Within those Divisions, dedicated Kids and Teens Club Coordinators are responsible for programming and are happy to provide information about membership benefits and more.  

Getting in touch with your local Club Coordinator is the best way to get involved with in-person activities and meetups near you. Find a contact listing on the landing page linked below. 

Visit the National Toy Train Museum for Free! 

Did you know that all members of our TCA Youth Clubs receive free admission whenever they visit the National Toy Train Museum in Strasburg, PA?  

Make a plan to come out and see our massive collection of trains—and run them, too! The NTTM is located in “Train City USA,” which has many other train-themed attractions nearby. It’s the perfect destination for railfans of all ages!
