Island Op Logo










IslandOps 2020 has been canceled. Please keep an eye out for IslandOps 2021.

We will have four operating session start times - Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning - at a number of different layouts within about 45 minutes of central Nassau County. The layouts range in size from a small rural town to a 5,600 square foot club layout representing a line from the New Jersey waterfront to central Pennsylvania. They range in era from 1940 to 2019, and in theme from hectic urban canyons to backwoods California.
