2024 Tulsa Layout & Design Ops Weekend

  • Friday, March 22, 2024
  • Sunday, March 24, 2024
  • Tulsa, OK

The Tulsa Layout & Design Operations Weekend is back and will be held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 2024 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  We will have five excellent presentations from four well known speakers:

  1. Phil Monat will speak twice, once on Yard Design Aspects, and once on Yard Operating Aspects
  2. David Doiron will present The Function of a Traffic Pattern in Operations
  3. John Parker will tell us about designing and operating his BNSF Fall River Division layout
  4. Sammy Carlile will address his Santa Fe Hereford Sub layout


There will be three operating sessions – Friday evening, Saturday evening and Sunday morning.


Unlike most operations weekends, this event centers around the Saturday presentations and includes lunch as well as experts to analyze and advise on layout design concerns you may have.  To cover the costs of renting the venue and providing the meal, attendees must register and pay a modest $40 registration fee.  Depending on the number of registrants, every out-of-town attendee will operate at lease twice, and most will operate three times.


Our website contains all the relevant data including hotel and layout information.


To register for this event, go to this link.  Preferred payment will be through PayPal.


The earlier you register, the better the chances of getting the layout operating assignments you prefer.

We ask that you help us promote this event by sharing this invitation with others.  Everyone is invited and you do not need to be a member of NMRA or any other organization to attend.

We hope to see you in Tulsa this coming March.
