What's New!

September 26th, 2019

Fall is now upon us and we are starting to move back indoors as the weather cools. As a result we can now get back to our layouts or other modelling persuits. I myself am getting ready for a busy schedule ahead so I urge everyone that is involved with an event that is open and may be of interests to others to let us know so that I can add them to events page on the CARM website.

The most recent issue, #69, of The Canadian is now available in the members area ready for download.

A new membership form for 2019/2020 has been added to the website so be sure to use the new form and discard any of the older forms as there has been a slight increase in cost for Internet with Calendar memberships to cover rising costs.

Thanks and enjoy this season and your trains.

Canadian Railway Convention

The Canadian Railway Convention is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Railway Modellers and works in co-operation with other groups. In the past we have worked with the Canadian Railway Historical Association, the Canadian National Lines Special Interest Group, the Canadian Pacific Historical Association, the Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo Historical Association and others to bring one of the finest railway conventions to all of their memberships.

Each year the convention is moved to different locations across Canada. This is only possible due to the dedication of members from each of the involved groups. The first convention was held in 2004 in St. Catharine's, Ontario. The conventions or Super Meets happen most years by one or more of the above groups taking the lead in planning and delivering an interesting and varied program. The conventions are not a cookie cutter pattern from one to the next as each organizing group puts their own spin on the convention. This keeps the program evolving and fresh each and every year.

Next Convention

Past Conventions

Even though these conventions are for the above groups they are not a closed conventions meaning that anyone can who can attend is welcomed. No membership in one or more of the above groups is required but it is hoped that if you enjoy your experience at the convention you will take the opportunity to talk to members from the different groups and possibly consider joining one or more of the groups. Memberships in all of the groups are available.
