2018 Meet the Modeller photos
Display Room:
The heart of the Railway Modellers Meet is you & what you are doing in the hobby!
We love this part of the show for its ability to bring us together, put names to faces, and inspire creativity in the hobby. It is meant to be wide open to any of the many ways we like to enjoy this fabulous hobby. You don’t need to be a craftsman or even a builder to participate. We welcome all levels of hobby fun.
Photos in and of themselves are welcome. This year we will provide a way to display them safely and prominently. Bring your models (finished or in progress), bring locomotives, structures, freight cars, dioramas, vehicles or other models. Or unusual tools & techniques. Show us a circuit you are using or some other new bit of tech. If you are doing research bring that too. Basically, if it’s part of the hobby, we’re interested to see what you are working on. Bring it to display and spend some time chatting about it with the rest of us. We love to see the “why and how” of your project too. If you have project or prototype photos, bring them along. Help us to understand why you built it and what makes it interesting.
All scales, gauges, and eras are welcome. Spend some time during the meet in the display room viewing the displays, learning what other others are doing and maybe find inspiration for your next project.
Check-in and AP Evaluation:
Whatever you bring, please make a point of advising the room attendant when you arrive. This helps us keep an eye on the display room so everyone leaves at the end of the meet as happy as when they arrived.
If you have a project you would like evaluated in the NMRA AP program, we will gladly make arrangements for that to occur (see details below). Out of consideration for the evaluators, please let us know ahead of the meet.
Meet the modeller – Saturday afternoon:
We continue to look for effective ways to enable participants to connect and make opportunities to talk about the hobby, our interests and pet projects. This year we are considering something new, the details of which are still being worked out.
Space:
We suggest that if you are intending to bring more than a few models it would be very helpful to have some advance notice so we can set the room up effectively. We have arranged for extra table space this year, but already know of two larger displays that plan to attend. Please let Rob Kirkham Click Here know approximately how much space you think your models will require and whether you need an electrical connection.
