Mount Clare Junction Model Railroad Convention
We invite modelers of all skill levels, all scales and all railroad enthusiasts to join us at the Mount Clare Junction model railroad convention, 21-24 October 2021 at the Delta Hunt Valley. The convention is here to help railroad aficionados and modelers achieve their goals, whether is be deciding what to model, honing an advanced skill or to get prototype exposure. Its our mission to bring together people from the various modeling communities and create learning opportunities.
Aligning with our mission to help modelers achieve their goals, several clinics will be hands-on, with a number of tracks creating a progressive learning experience. Topics covering the railroads local to Maryland will be covered in addition to panels on electronics, animation, model construction, weathering/aging and design/construction. A track is being developed for attendees with a lesser interest in railroads, possessing clinics on landscape painting and the general art interests.
Sixteen model railroad layout owners around the Baltimore area will be opening their doors to visitors during the convention, with seven of those conducting operating sessions. Several of these layouts have been published in railroad-related magazines, and we look forward to offering the opportunity to see them for yourselves. We continue to work with local railroads to offer prototype visits and educational experiences to our attendees.
