The 2013 convention of the National Model Railroad Association will be held in Atlanta, Georgia from July 14 through the 20th. I am very happy to report that I will be attending at least from Thursday the 17th on. Earlier depends on work and wife and funds and life in general. There will be layout tours, workshops, seminars, displays, and just all kind of good model railroad stuff. And some prototype railroading too!
The show will be held in Marietta, which is in Northwest Atlanta, at the Cobb Galleria Centre. As always, the even also coincides with the National Train Show. The National Train Show® was established in 1988 by the National Model Railroad Association as a nationally sponsored combined industry trade show and public train show to promote the hobby of model railroading. The National Train Show offers convention attendees the opportunity to meet vendors, suppliers, and manufacturers of the hobby industry. Many manufacturers also unveil new products at the Show.
