NMRA British Region Convention 2016

NMRA BR Convention 2016

This year the NMRA British Region Convention took place in Meriden.  It had the normal mix of layouts, traders, clinics, displays and demonstrations plus the contest and ever popular bring and buy.

    1. Rodney, in the UK the NMRA is just a North American outline organisation. It has nothing really to offer UK modellers beyond what they already have. There are already 5 major U.K. Magazines, 100s of local clubs, major clubs for specific scales such as the O Gauge Guild and modelling societies for each country such as the German Model Railway Club.

      The NMRA falls into the latter group, a country specific modelling club, so only US and Canadian layouts would be present at its conventions.

      The big National Convention that is being run in 2022 will include layouts from every country but that is an exception. Many NMRA members may model other prototypes but they just wouldn’t show that work at the NMRA.
