RPM updates

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

It’s been a busy few months with several Railroad Prototype Modeler (RPM) events held around the US and Canada. The summer months are a little quieter but there are a few meets ahead. Review the RPM Event Calendar to see what is happening near you.

Three upcoming events are centered around major population centers. Here’s a quick review.

The New England/Northeast RPM is an easy drive from metro-Boston and NYC. This event has grown quite a bit since the humble beginnings just a few years ago.

The Bay Area RPM will hold it’s 15th annual event near San Francisco.

The St. Louis crew celebrates a 12th annual affair with the St. Louis RPM. This has become one of the largest RPM meets in the country.

Summer winds down with a small specialty meet in the lumber region of north central Pennsylvania; the Buffalo & Susquehanna RR Symposium.

Additional events round out the last few months of 2018. Check the RPM Event Calendar for details and links to make your plans. I’m hoping to attend at least one more this year. Maybe I’ll see you there!
