The Southern Railway Historical Association is pleased to announce the Atlanta RPM Meet. RPM in this instance stands for “Railroads Prototype Modelers”. The meet will be held at The Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History in Kennesaw, Georgia.
The RPM meet welcomes all model railroaders interested in replicating prototype railroad locomotive, rolling stock, structures and locations. The focus is on sharing and learning what modelers are doing and how they’re doing it. This meet is not a contest and welcomes models in any scale, finished or under-construction, based on prototype railroad locomotives, rolling stock, structures, and scenes, regardless of the modeler’s skill level.
The Southern Museum is the home of the “General” (Western & Atlantic No. 3); SRHA’s Southern Railway Archives (Presidents’ Files, drawings, photos, and document collections); Dave Salter photo collection; Glover Machine Works collection; and other Civil War and railroad collections. Admission to the museum is included in your registration and exhibits will be open to attendees. The museum is adjacent to the CSX Chattanooga Subdivision mainline
This meet is a joint effort of the SRHA, Atlantic Coast Line & Seaboard Airline Railroads Historical Society, Central of Georgia Railway Historical Society, and Nashville Chattanooga & St. Louis Preservation Society.
Mark your calendars for September 18 – 20, 2014, get your models ready to display and plan to bring a friend.
