Welcome to CARM, the Canadian Association of Railway Modellers, located in Canada but with members from many areas around the world. CARM is both for Canadians as well as those with interests in Canadian Railways or model railroading or both. Our membership in the organization is open to anyone that wishes to join.
Our members area has more content that is only available to members which includes an archive of images that have a Canadian Railway theme in a higher resolution than those available in other areas of this website. Also members have access to all of the newsletters ever printed by CARM as electronic downloads in PDF format.
CARM Mini Convention
This year CARM is holding a mini convention in Montreal, Quebec. This will be a little different for most of you as this is a mini not a full convention. This doesn't mean that there will be nothing to do but in fact it will mean that the content will be different and full of activity. Some of the activities included are a Meet adnd Greet Barbecue, Layout Tours, Annual General Meeting, Exporail "behind the sceness" and more. Lodging, registration and prior and post convention plans are be finalized so check back here for more information. A full block of information will also be in the next issue of "The Canadian".
The Opening Doors Tour
Hi everyone, click on the flyer below for a PDF version to print. This flyer outlines a CARM Meet to be held on the weekend of March 5th and 6th in conjunction with the Copetown Train Show. It is a little more expensive than our normal meets since there is a dinner involved. Due to the fact that we have committed to the Lions Club for the dinner I would appreciate it if you could give me a heads up if you are planning to attend. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know someone will ask so here is the answer to the question: Can I just attend the Layout Tour? The answer: You are free to attend as much or as little of the Event as you choose, however, since our costs are fixed, the fee is the same. This is the first of a number of Events we are going to try and run this year so I hope you support it.
Each year in Copetown, Ontario, CARM sponsors the Copetown Train Show.
