The annual kick-off to the holiday season is coming soon. No, not the yearly fall visit of the Coastal Carolina Fair. I am talking about the Charleston Area Model Railroad Club’s train show. What would the holidays be without toy trains?

Model Railroad and Train ShowAs in past years, the show will be held at the Danny Jones Armory and Gymnasium, 5000 Lackawanna Blvd, North Charleston, SC 29405. This year looks to be a much bigger and better show with two buildings of vendors and displays. (Can we all get a shout of approval for the return of the displays?)

The dates of the show are Saturday and Sunday, November 8 and 9, 2014.

For more information, check out the Charleston Area Model Railroad Club’s website. You can also email them if you are interested in being a vendor.

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.

Southern Railway Historical Society Hosts Atlanta RPM Meet

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.
