Join the Operations SIG!

Thanks for your interest in joining the Operations Special Interest Group! We are an official special interest group recognized by the National Model Railroad Association. While NMRA membership is encouraged, it is not required to join the Operations SIG. 

As part of your yearly membership, you'll receive four quarterly issues of The Dispatcher's Office, our operations-focused publication. The Dispatcher's Office is available as either a digital download or a mailed printed copy. As a print subscriber, you'll also get access to the digital copy. In addition, all members have complete access to 30+ years of our digital back catalog at no additional charge as long as they remain members of the OpSIG. 

Other member services available through the members-only section of the website include a membership directory, event calendar, and a railroad directory to help promote your railroad and your operating sessions. 


Join and Pay Online

To purchase your membership, please create your profile first, and then you can choose your membership type and pay via PayPal (with or without a PayPal account). This will grant you instant access to the online issues in the digital back catalog.
