We are now able to share some of the finalized details regarding the 2018 RGM&HS convention this summer.  We are partnering with the NMRA’s National Convention (August 5th-12th) in Kansas City and will be hosting our one-day convention on Thursday, August 9th at the NMRA National Convention.  You can learn more about the NMRA national Convention  http://www.kc2018.org.   
 
Admission to the RGM&HS Convention will be the daily rate for the NMRA Convention. (A slight upcharge is required for non-NMRA members.)  We will be posting more information and registration details in early March on the RGM&GS Website.

On that Thursday we’ve planned a full day of RGM&HS presentations in a dedicated room for the society at the NMRA National Convention.   In the evening we have planned tours to 3 Rio Grande themed layouts in the area covering:
  • Dave Acheson’s - Colorado Joint Line with spur to Coors 
  • Ron Bibbison’s - Denver to the Moffat Tunnel
  • John Vandenberg’s - HOn3 Narrow Gauge.
 RGM&HS convention attendees will also receive reduced entrance cost to the National Train Show on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The RGM&HS will have a our Company Store in a booth at the Train Show.  You can learn more about the National

Train Show that weekend by visiting:

Friday night there will be an informal Dinner for society members at Jack Stacks Bar-B-Q across from Union Station (pay for your own).
 Saturday we will be having the RGM&HS Board of Trustee meeting. RGM&HS members are welcome attend.
 We hope you can make plans to join us in Kansas City!
