NE Proto Meet is May 29-30 in Connecticut

Dave Owens

Greetings all:

This year's New England/Northeast Prototype Meet is May 29-30, the
weekend after Memorial Day, at the Canton Community Center, 40 Dyer
Ave., Collinsville, Connecticut.

Again, we are benefiting from a group of remarkably generous
clinicians who will share their skills and knowledge. We'll have a
clinic list and scheduled posted shortly on our website, A registration form is already posted there.

As with all protomeets, the model display is a key element. We urge
all attendees to bring models to share. There is no judging so please
don't be concerned you and your work will be held to some arbitrary
standard. Locomotives, rolling stock, structures, vehicles, etc., are

We also have a terrific group of vendors and manufacturers who plan to
attend the meet, including Bob's Photo, Atlas Model Railroad Co.,
Branchline Trains, Rapido Trains, Sheepscot Scale Models, Funaro &
Camerlengo, Speedwitch Media, the Hobby Gallery and several others,

The meet pre-registration fee is $25, the same it's been the past
several years. Registration at the door is $30.

We hope you can join us. Questions? Contact me at neprotomeet@....

On another matter, the National Model Railroad Association will
conducts its annual convention in Hartford this summer. Vin Gallogly,
the convention chairman, and his team, including clinic coordinator
John McGloin, have worked incredibly hard to put together what I
believe will be a great convention. The convention is July 5-11 at the
Connecticut Convention Center. For more information, visit

We have been invited to staff a prototype room and would be pleased to
do so if we have enough modelers willing to participate. If you will
be attending the convention, and would like to show models, let us
