When and where is the
Railroad Modeling
University held?

Our 12th Annual Railroad Modeling University will be held January 27, 2018 at Christ the King Church in Charlotte, NC. Planning has been completed and we are ready to accept "students".

Our Dean of the School has acquired a bevy of outstanding clinicians who will be covering topics for modelers of all ages for the upcoming session. Be sure to check out the class offerings at this link. We are sure you will find something of interest.

To get a flavor of what RMU is all about, you can view a full report of the 2017 event, which is posted at this link.

What is the Railroad
Modeling University?

It is a place to discover the fun of model railroading. You do not have to be an NMRA member to attend; the event is open to the public, but registration is required. Master Model Railroaders and just 'Plain Ole Modelers'  conduct clinics (short classes in 'university speak') and hold demonstrations (labwork in 'university speak') about the various aspects of model railroading. Our mission is simple: To provide a venue where modelers, from beginners to experts, are introduced to:
  1) New concepts and techniques which will assist them in taking their layouts and models to a higher level, and;
  2) Fellow modelers who will become friends and mentors.

We have reports posted on our First Annual in September 2007, our Second Annual in January 2008, our Third Annual in February 2009, our Fourth Annual in February 2010, our Fifth Annual in January 2011, our Seventh Annual in January 2013, and our Ninth Annual in January 2015 sessions to give you a peek at some of the happenings at our RMU sessions.
