Model Railroading in the Digital Age!

Please join us on September 22nd & 23rd at the University of Notre Dame’s McKenna Hall (On Campus) in Notre Dame Indiana for another exciting educational opportunity featuring some of the hobby’s most experienced modelers. As the birthplace of the NMRA’s new EduTRAIN Program, the NMRA Michiana division attracts model railroaders like you from across the country due to the conference content, the expertise of its presenters, and its appeal to modelers of every scale.

This year’s program promises a full schedule of new educational clinics from some of the best modelers in the Midwest, an all day Weathering Clinic on Friday and Saturday, Workshops, Layout tours on Friday Night, and a large Freemo layout! All of this for only $35 for both days, or $20 if you can only attend on Saturday.

Clinics Sneak Peek:

In addition to our great clinics, this year's workshop lineup will feature one-hour workshops LIke Resurrecting Scenery with Tom Johnson, and Modeling with Maynard Mitchell, plus Dave Schroedle's all day weathering workshop each day.

We also encourage you to bring display models to the conference so that all of our attendees can see examples of the many techniques being employed in the hobby. Freemo! Once again, we'll have a large Freemo layout that can be operated during the conference.

Prizes will be given out throughout the conference.
