2015 ST. LOUIS RAILROAD PROTOTYPE MODELER'S MEET

Meet us in St. Louis for the NINTH ANNUAL St. Louis RPM Meet on Friday, August 7th and Saturday, August 8th, 2015 at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville, Illinois.  Collinsville is 12 miles east of metro St. Louis on I-55/70.  The meet starts at 9 AM both days.  

We are expanding again - now over 16,000 sq.ft. of high-quality models, modular layouts, displays, and hands-on workstations in the modern, professional Gateway Convention Center. Clinics and presentations by nationally-recognized historians and modelers.  Railroad Historical Societies and scale model vendors and manufacturers will also be in attendance.  Attendee model displays.  Evening home layout tours, fellowship, door prizes and much, much more!

We are co-sponsored by the Gateway Division, Mid-Continent Region, National Model Railroad Association.  Our friends at the Gateway NMRA can be found at http://www.gatewaynmra.org/default.htm
       
A hard copy of our latest flyer can be downloaded as a PDF here <http://home.mindspring.com/~icg/rpm/stlrpm.pdf> .
    
The heart of our event is YOUR MODELS!  Bring your models, finished or in progress, for display and discussion.  All scales, gauges, and models from all eras are welcome; bring locomotives, structures, freight cars, dioramas, vehicles or other models. There are no contests. The purpose of our event is to share and learn new techniques, and meet your fellow modelers from St. Louis and around the Nation. We had over 1,400 models brought by attendees in 2014!  This year we have have even more room for models--48 tables--so if you bring it, we've got room for it!

New for 2015: Come see the fabulous Modutrak N Scale 65 x 15-foot layout--one of the best modular layouts you will see anywhere, in any scale, representing the Milwaukee Road in Wisconsin.  Mike Skibbe will provide a clinic on the layout--see below for more info.

Also in 2015: Clark Propst's mini-layout depicting the Allied Mills plant in Mason City, Iowa layout will be back, so if you missed your chance to operate the layout, you'll have another chance this year.  Come meet Clark--a popular RMC and Mode Railroad Planning author--and his crew from Mason City, Iowa.

BRING YOUR MODELS FOR DISPLAY!

Hours: 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M both days. Admission: $25.00 Friday & Saturday, $20.00 Saturday only. Kids under 13 free with paid adult admission. Vendor set-up at 7:15 AM Fri. Sales end at 5:00 P.M. Saturday. St. Louis RPM is a not-for-profit event!

8.  Mike Wise - St. Louis in Transition, featuring scenes from the St. Louis area between 1962 and 1982.  This is an extension of Joe Collias's steam era presentation a few years ago and is not to be missed!

Part of the HO line is already gone. Dies for the RC Class F-70-7 SP flat cars were acquired by the SP Historical & Technical Society.

Though Red Caboose has turned over all marketing, distribution and manufacturing of Red Caboose products, only the RTR items are done this way by agreement.

Red Caboose continues to offer parts and kits, though the last 8 months have been difficult for RC, and orders for parts and kits are delayed.

Re: CGW X-29

Bill Welch
 

From my Undecorated RC kit box ends

RC-7002 = 1924 Body Style Steel Plate Ends
RC-7003 = X-29 ARA Body Plate Ends

PRR fans, don't shoot me as the box label says "X-29" not the correct X29.

The lack of precision in box labeling may be contributing to the confusion but there are two distinct body styles with plate ends. AFAIK, RC only produced the X29 body style with the welded body repair plates along the bottom. BTW on one of the Undec kits I have has a note to myself that there is a pair of Chad Boas B&O door inside.

I believe Bill retains the molds as I have been trying to get detail sprues of Sill Steps and Bracket grabs from him for two years so I can have them burned out for brass parts. He keeps promising me. I assume Andy Carlson has an order in with him for more Undec kits of all of the versions.

These are great kits in my opinion and hopefully Speedwitch will again offer all of their modification parts for these cars to do them as B&O cars with Duryea U/F, LNE, MEC and CofNJ once they.

If you go to www.red-caboose.com all their undec kits are listed. RC 7003 is the ARA body.

Re: CGW X-29

I don't recall seeing any 1923 ARA cars from RC. In fact there is now on e-bay a listing for an RC "X-29" lettered for CGW. It even has the reversed 3 panels on the door and is numbered 86302. It looks like  a reasonable stand-in for the correct car, but it IS an X29 style with X29 rivet pattern and ladder position. Would RC produce a "bogus" 86302 if they had a 1923 ARA car available?

There were CGW “X29 style” cars with the original Pullman doors in MofW service for the CNW. Even into the last gray and red scheme. One may still be on the Iowa Interstate? It sat in Coralville IA for years.
 
Bob’s photos has several good photos of these cars in as built paint.
