Please remember that the heart of the meet is the model dislay. Bring your models, finished and unfinished, to display in the model room. There's no judging. The goal is to share information and techniques.

We'll also have some dealers on Saturday.

Also, as a bonus to people arriving early, Bill Schneider of Branchline Trains will open the Branchline factory for tours on Thursday evening. Email or call me for details.

Scheduled programs include:

Prototype weathering with Mike Rose and Ned Carey. Learn Mike's techniques, and then employ them in a hands-on clinic. Bring a model and if possible a prototype photo of it.

Scratchbuilding basics with Roger Moreau. Roger's scratchbuilt Schnable car was a big hit last year. This year he's working on a dockside container crane and will offer a hands-on clinic. Bring tools.
