2020    CAROLINA SPECIAL    2020

The Carolina Southern Division is proud to be the sponsor of the 2020 Convention of the Mid-Eastern Region of the National Model Railroad Assocation called the CAROLINA SPECIAL. This annual event provides a venue for NMRA Model Railroaders from Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and the District of Columbia, plus parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and North and South Carolina to gather and share their craftmanship and skill, enjoy the fellowship of fellow ferrequinologists, visit local layouts and prototype rail operations, and to generally have a good time.

Detail for 2020 are currently under development, but plans are to have them ready for announcement at the 2019 MER Convention, sponsored by the Philadelphia Division in King of Prussia, PA on October 10-13. Details about The Liberty Bell Special are at this link.

We are looking forward to seeing you in King of Prussia and hope you will be among the first to LOOK SOUTH IN 2020 and register for the CAROLINA SPECIAL at that time.


No convention can be successful without the help of a small army of volunteers to handle the many details of the event. The more volunteers we have, the easier the task is for each one. We urge you to take a look at the Leadership Listing at the link above, and contact the leader for the area you are willing to help in. The sooner you volunteer, the better choice you will have for picking the area in which you can contribute most to the enjoyment of your fellow model railroaders during the event.

Right now the contact information is incomplete, but will be filled in at the end of February. Thank you in advance for your support.

Oh, by the way, for those of you in the NMRA Achievement Program, since this is a Regional Event, you can accumulate big time Time Units (points) toward your Association Volunteer Award -- just saying...
