      Hello all,


      Just a reminder that BC RPM is only  3 weeks away. Our fifth annual  meet will again be held in conjunction with Trains 2012. The meet will be held in Burnaby, BC on Saturday, November 10th, 2012 from 10AM to 4PM. Participants are invited to display their models and dioramas, share information and learn valuable techniques in an interactive and non-competitive environment. All SCALES and ALL ROADS are welcome as are in-progress models. BRING YOUR MODELS!!!


      Building on last year's success, the meet will feature an expanded show & tell segment providing modeller's the opportunity to discuss their techniques and experiences in a group setting during the lunch hour.
