    In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

        The final countdown is here. The convention starts in only a few days. Here's a reminder of some of what we have coming:

        There are still just a couple of seats left at the banquet if anyone is interested. An awesome keynote will be given.

        Several manufacturers will be in attendance including AtlasO, MTH, and Loksound in addition to a bunch of vendors and table holders!

        Two of our convention cars are in stock. The FGE car was a victim of the Atlas Factory Shutdown.

        Model Contest details and forms have been posted. We will be having a sponsored and judged contest. There will be plaques and prizes to first place in each category as well as a display table for non-competing models that everyone wishes to show off! Everyone should definitely plan on entering this. Sponsored by White River Productions and OST Magazine!

        An awesome goodie bag for those registered for the convention!

        These hands-on clinics include a FREE operating session at MMR Andrew Dodge's P:48 layout. Details on all of these are on the recently minted and detailed clinic schedule that has been posted.

        Layout tours galore!

        The convention hotel is more or less sold out (They found us more rooms, but those may be gone...), but this link has all the info. Your best bet is to call the hotel.

        For those who can only make the festivities for one day, we have rolled out a one-day registration for Saturday. Details are here.


        To recap for those who may not already know, everyone interested in 1/4" scale modeling is invited to the 50th O Scale National Convention, co-sponsored with the NMRA Mid Eastern Region. Standard gauge, narrow gauge, P48, traction, and transit. We welcome everyone from any background and any scale that is interested in O Scale to join us. Come see how the scale is thriving today!

        The convention will be held August 22-26, 2018 at the Rockville Hilton Hotel, 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852.

        Hope to see you all there.I should have some of my models on display and will give a clinic on how I go about taking stock models and detailing them.
