2011 NMRA Convention.....
« on: August 15, 2010, 07:26:08 PM »
Hi, all,

As a general public service to the model railroading community at large,
I'd like to share the following. 

X2011 West, the 2011 National Model Railroad Association Convention, will be held in
Sacramento, CA on July 3-9, 2011. 

The current registration fee for the Convention is a very inexpensive $99!

But, that price will be available only until September 1, 2010.  After that, it will
increase to $139.

The 2011 NMRA Convention is being called the “Unconventional Convention”, since not only
do we have an unusually low registration fee, but will have both bus layout tours and
self-guided layout tours, specialized clinic tracks all week, and an emphasis on including
scale and prototype modeling from many different groups and scales, not just NMRA.
More information is at the convention web site:

To register and take advantage of the early bird price, go to:

The Convention committee apologizes for cross-postings to various groups, but
we want to get the word out to as many modelers as possible, before the cost
of registration increases. 


Regardless if you are able to attend or not, we invite you to follow along
with us via Facebook or Twitter, during the coming year and during the convention, and   
see photos, videos, of interest to all, regardless of scale:   or on Twitter:

You don't have to be a member of either Facebook or Twitter, anyone can see the above

Our goal is to give everyone worldwide the opportunity to enjoy the X2011 West National
Convention in some way, whether it be in person, or if you cannot, in real-time via the
Internet.  :-)
Our goal is to contribute to your model railroading enjoyment, as a public service to all. 


Finally, here's a couple shots of the many photos from the 2010 NMRA 75th Anniversary Convention
in Milwaukee that are on the Facebook page
Feel free to browse, and enjoy your model railroading!  :
