BC RPM less than two weeks away!
- Hi folks, Just a reminder that the third edition of BC RPM will be upon us in just under two weeks. Scheduled in conjunction with TRAINS 2010, the railroad prototype modeler's meet will run 9AM-4PM Saturday, November 13th in Burnaby, BC Canada. The usual all roads, all eras, all scales applies here. If you build railway related models or are interested in building some come and check us out. Remember to bring your models!
