Description
The Railway Modellers Meet is the Lower Mainland meet of the 7th Division, Pacific Northwest Region of the National Model Railroad Association (Canada). The meet is being held May 4th to May 6th, 2018 at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby Campus.

Activities include layout tours, operating sessions, model and prototype clinics, model displays and "Meet the Modeller" as well as a meet luncheon.

The RRMBC committee is excited to announce that Bernard Kempinski will be presenting at this years Railway Modellers Meet.

Bernard is an active model railroader who has worked in many scales from N through O. He is proprietor of Alkem Scale Models who has built many models on commission for museums and individuals. Bernard is a popular speaker at model railroading events and a freelance writer who has written dozens of magazine articles and several books on model railroading, many of them on layout planning. His latest book from Kalmbach Publishing is “Waterfront Terminals and Operations”, released in 2017.

Bernard will be presenting a clinic on rail/marine modelling as well as a special post-luncheon talk titled “High Tech Approaches Applied to a 19th Century Railroad”. In his talk he will cover the application of laser cutters, 3D printing, photo etching, battery power and casting techniques to model an unusual U.S. Civil War era steam prototype. Bernard’s presentation promises to be a fascinating and interesting look at what is possible with the state of the art techniques available to all modellers.

All this and more is happening this year. www.railwaymodellersmeetofbc.ca has all the details.
