CARM Super Meet - Montreal, QC, August 5 & 6, 2017

This event introduces a new format for CARM Conventions, Mini-Conventions, or Meets. We have seen the success of other events such as the Narrow Gauge Convention, and will be adopting that format. Each attendee is responsible for their own accommodation and transportation. We will provide assistance by identifying local hotels and their price options.

The Meet dates are: 5 & 6 August 2017. These dates were selected to take advantage of the long weekend in Ontario We are lining up a number of events including a Meet & Greet, a Railfan guide for Montreal, a visit to ExpoRail, private layouts to visit on the way to and from Montreal, and 7 club layouts in Montreal itself.

Each attendee will received a Tour Booklet and Pass, however, Montreal is a large city, and a GPS would be a real asset in getting around. The 7 club layouts in the Montreal area are: West Island Modular Railway Club, British Model Railway club of Montreal, Montreal Vermont & Essex, Chemin de fer Richelieu & St Laurent Railway, Montreal Live Steamers, Green Valley Short Line Railroad Club, and JAC Hobby (2 scales). In addition there are many model displays at the Exporail Railway Museum in addition to their prototype collection.

Among the Hobby Shops available for you to visit are: Hobby Junction, Udisco, Van Horne Hobbies, Hobby Vermont & Essex and JAC Hobbies. We are looking into Hotels which are close to the Dorval Train Station, the Airport and Ian MacCleod’s home club the West Island Modular Railroad Club.
