24th Annual WPM Meet next Saturday
- Here's a friendly reminder about the Western Prototype Modelers meet, celebrating our 24th year next Saturday, April 13, from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM at the Santa Fe/Amtrak Depot in San Bernardino. The address is 1170 West Third Street, San Bernardino, CA.
WPM Admission is $15 ($10 if you bring 3 models or more to display). Parking is free, as is admission to the San Bernardino History & Railroad Museum.
See prototype models inside the magnificent and historic San Bernardino Depot and full-size trains right outside the door. Locomotives, freight, passenger, caboose, MOW, structures and vehicles will be on display. Enjoy model and vendor displays, seminars/clinics all day and two raffles, with prizes donated by WPM's generous manufacturing, retail, and publishing supporters.
Please bring your finished or work-in-progress models for others to enjoy. The more models that are displayed, the better the meet will be, so please do your part!
