Free-mo is not a club or even an organization. Free-mo is a set of standards for building Prototype Model Train Modules.

Some clubs have adopted the Free-mo Standard as their club module standard. Other groups have published their own Standards based off the Free-mo Standard. Some are a copy of the standards posted here, others have added more to their standards; so long as their standards still meet the Free-mo standards they are still Free-mo.

An example would be defining a local Fascia Color, the Free-mo standard does not define a color, it states

General module fascia color shall complement scenery and not draw attention from the scene.

A club can define a color that they use, this is further defining a standard, but not conflicting with the Free-mo standard. Chat Group
