approaching quickly. If you haven’t preregistered please do so soon.
You can preregister on our website: You'll also save $5 by

The meet is at the Holiday Inn Springfield South in Enfield, Conn.

Unfortunately, the hotel has sold out for the weekend. If you still
need lodging, please check your favorite online site. There are
several nearby hotels, including a Hampton Inn in Enfield and a
Comfort Inn in East Windsor, Conn. Both are only minutes from the meet

We have a tentative clinic schedule on our website:

The meet features dozens of clinics, a large model display, great
vendors, a white elephant table and several manufacturers, including
Rapido, Atlas, ESU, ScaleTrains and True Line Trains. We also expect
some historical societies to attend. Please bring your models to show.
Remember, there is no judging. All models are welcome and encouraged,
even those that are not complete. The model room is truly the heart of
the meet.

We have a variety of great vendors attending, including Funaro &
Camerlengo, Ron’s Books, Bob’s Photo, the Hobby Gallery, Minute Man
Scale Models/Scalecoat, Crusader Rail Services, New England Rail
Service, Bethlehem Car Works, Greg Gordon, Speedwitch Media, Mask

Works and others.

We’ll again have our white elephant room for meet attendees to sell
off surplus equipment. Space is limited so don’t empty your basement!

Each evening we’ll have our fundraising raffle with items donated by
the good people at Athearn, Atlas, ESU, Funaro & Camerlengo, Bob’s
Photo, Ron’s Books, Westerfield, ExactRail, Tangent, Rix Products,
