RPM updates

It’s time for a look at the Railroad Prototype Modeler event calendar as five meets are scheduled over the next couple of months. Let’s take a quick look at those.

The Central Ohio meet is now underway in Marion, Ohio. If you live an hour or two from Marion, grab a few friends and attend the event. Denis Blake and his crew present a fine affair in a historic setting. Don’t forget to bring a few models to display.

Also this weekend is the Pacific Northwest meet in Monroe, WA. The metro-Seattle region has a strong contingent of prototype modelers and a solid team organizing this RPM.

May kicks off with the Railway Modellers Meet in Vancouver, BC, just a bit north of Seattle. Operating sessions and two days of presentations will keep you busy.

June opens with the New England/Northeast RPM in Enfield, CT. Dave Owens and his crew have seen their event grow in size over the last few years as it attracts prototype modelers from all over the region.

The Bay Area Prototype Modelers Meet celebrates 14 years on June 17th in Richmond, CA. This day-long RPM stalwart offers a mix of presentations, model displays, and manufacturer displays.

June closes out with the St. Louis RPM in nearby Collinsville, IL. Over the course of eleven years, the St. Louis meet has grown into the largest RPM on the calendar with a wide variety of activities.

I try to keep the RPM calendar current but I rely on help from readers. Check it out for additional events through the end of 2017. Links and contact points are included to help you plan. The Mountain States meet was just added and a web address is coming soon. Post a comment in the section below with any new RPM details and it will be added to the calendar. If you don’t know all the info, please include a contact for the organizers so I can contact them and get the scoop. Please follow the instructions so your comment can be posted. All comments are reviewed and approved before they appear.

Spread the word about prototype modeler meets. Share the link and invite your friends to attend a local event. RPM meets are where modelers share information and recharge the creative drive to tackle the next hobby challenges.
