Whats Happening at the ILS.
Mark your calendars! The ILS will again be presenting at the 36th annual All American Railroad Show on March 25, 2017. This show provides a great opportunity to learn about many of the scale and model railroading clubs around the Chicagoland area. The only thing for sale at this event is lunch so it's a great opportunity to bring the kids to introduce them to this amazing hobby. We look forward to seeing you there!

In preparation for the ILS 50th annual meet the club has started on a project to rebuild our 3/4" high line. Rick Tracy, Mark Spiner, Tom Chmura, Joe Chmura, and the Wednesday crew have been working hard to build new supports and concrete pads that will allow the new high-line to "float" so that it can be more easily adjusted and leveled than the old track. Despite being the gauge that started the ILS, the 3/4 inch has experienced a decrease in use. With this renovation we hope to see an increased use of our high-line which is gauged for 3/4 and G.
