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 Conventions

Most years we have a convention held somewhere in Canada that allows our members and others to get together in one location and share of common interests, learn, teach, and socialize. If you have never been to a convention you may not know what you are missing. Last years convention was in Thunder Bay, Ontario in late September early October. This was a change for the time of year and it was a very different convention to attend. The fall colours were in full glory at that time of year.
