The recent St. Louis RPM meet was well attended with more than 650 through the doors. Additionally, there were nearly 3000 wonderful models displayed. Bill Welch sent along his thoughts on the meet with a few photos. Links to photo galleries are posted at the end. Here’s Bill!
Here is my take on what I saw and heard at the St. Louis RPM. Bob’s Photo had about 20 binders that he characterized as new photos, both color and B&W, in addition to his usual array of old milk crates of photos sorted by railroad.
The Resin Car Works minions have been busy prepping a new release for the 2018 RPM Chicagoland. An HO scale, 50-foot 10-foot 5-inch interior height, Soo automobile boxcar is in the works. These will feature new etched brass ladders from Plano Model Products. Decals and detail parts are in hand. The master patterns are complete and should be cast soon.
These Plano ladders will be available later this summer (2018). If they sell well, additional variations will be added to the Plano line.
Here we are at the start of another calendar year ready for projects and adventures to unfold. This blog began in March 2015 and there have been 135 blog posts since it started. After the Resin Car Works website was set up, Frank wanted to launch a blog. He wanted to share his modeling and layout work, in addition to updates on new resin freight car kits. That’s how it began.
