Brian Ehni attended the Red River RPM near Fort Worth on June 25th. He sent along a few images and notes on the event. Here’s Brian with the report.
We were in the Grand Ballroom of the Forest Hill Civic Center, with clinics in room 202 and a nearby break room. The room was pretty large. They had free water and soft drinks in the kitchen, which were paid for by the $20 entrance fee.
A few face-to-face Railroad Prototype Modeler (RPM) events are ahead on the calendar. The Reading modelers meet this weekend while the Central Ohio and Carolinas events are next weekend. An RPM in Los Angeles closes the year. Check the RPM calendar for dates, locations, and links.
A month can disappear quickly. I’ve been keeping busy, just not posting updates. A few models have moved forward and I attended the St. Louis Railroad Prototype Modeler (RPM) meet since the last post. Time to catch up.
I’m still catching up from the RPM Chicagoland prototype modeler event. I enjoyed meeting many modelers, renewing friendships, attending presentations, viewing a wide variety of models on display, and visiting a couple local layouts.
I’m finally getting caught up after the recent RPM-East prototype modeler meet, so it’s time for an update. I started my RPM experience by attending a Thursday night operating session on Roy Ward’s HO scale West Virginia Central & Pittsburg (correct with no ‘H’ at the end). I had a great time working a couple different jobs.
