The TGA is having a fundraiser! As you all know the last few years have been odd. Not only are we dealing with the repercussions of the pandemic, but there have been ripple effects. Our storage and transportation costs have increased, and by optionally waiving membership fees for the last 2 years and by cancelling one Railcon and last years being less attended, our income has decreased. There are many different ways you, as a TGA member, can participate.

We also have a Lifetime Membership option. For donating $500, your membership is paid up for life. Not only can you get one for yourself, but they make great gifts! These can be purchased here.


As always, we have a straight-up donation option that you can make in person or online at Donate to the TGA .

Another option is to purchase chances for a home-made train quilt. Melissa Mendick, Sewing By Melissa, has made and donated this quilted throw. Please note that only current TGA members (paid for 2022) are eligible to win this quilt. It is 54” x 54”. If this is a success we’ll see about making this an annual thing. Chances are $5 each or 5 for $20 (click here to buy raffle tickets). Again, only currently paid for 2022 TGA members can win. If you are not a member, you can sign up at our website - TGA Membership (Join or Renew for 2022).  Any chances purchased by persons not paid for 2022 will be considered a donation to the TGA instead.

The drawing will be held at Railcon 2022 at the Annual Members Meeting, October 16, 2022. You will not need to be present to win. If you aren’t there we can bring it to the next con you’ll be at or ship it to you (at your expense, probably in the $10-15 range).
