The Twin Cities Division
March 11-12, 2022
Plan now to attend the Annual Twin Cities Division, NMRA Modelers Meet in Plymouth, Mn. The meet offers the opportunity to attend educational and entertaining presentations which will add to your enjoyment of our great hobby of model railroading.
This year’s meet will feature a line up of presentations covering a wide topics of modeling interest from historical research to the latest techniques. In our model display room, you will have the opportunity to see great modeling projects and talk to the modelers who built them. Among the 10 scheduled presentations are local favorites Greg Smith presenting on Model Railroad Photography and Bob Rivard on Modeling Open Loads. We will have a resin kit build “station” and presentations on operations.
One of the great things about a Modelers Meet is that you can participate in many ways. You may attend to enjoy the social interaction with fellow modelers, You can attend to research new ideas and techniques, you can bring your “in process” modeling projects to show and inspire others while you gather ideas on how to finish your model before the TLR Convention in May. You can also bring your finished models to share your efforts which provides more inspiration for fellow modelers and previews the great models we will see In Brainerd at the TLR Convention.
We have been asked not to serve food this year so the Modelers Meet cost is only 15.00 which gives you two days entrance, two days of presentations and last but not least…. The opportunity to be a part of the recording of an episode of the Twin Cities Division podcast THE CROSSING GATE. This podcast represents the Twin Cities Division’s efforts to share the great hobby of Model Railroading to the world. The podcast is regularly downloaded on every continent across the globe. You can be a part of it. While negotiations are still in progress, we are hopeful that joining our recording will be the lovely Ms. Diana Gasior, the velvet smooth, enchanting voice that introduces each episode.
