About the Convention

Welcome to the Rails to the Lakehead convention site for the Canadian Association of Railway Modellers, CARM, national convention for 2014 being held in Thunder Bay, Ontario at the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel for 3 days of railroad activities including clinics, prototype tours and railfanning.

Planning is well underway and our line up of confirmed prototype and layout tours is going to be one of the best tours experiences of all our conventions. Clinics will also feature an impressive line up of speakers. Finally in another first for CARM the convention will be held in one of the classic railway hotels of Canada. Plan your attendance to coincide with a railfanning experience across some of the most spectacular railroad scenery in Canada at the height of the fall colours.

Check this website regularly as we add more information and note that some of the events will have limits to the number of participants so you will need to confirm early. We look forward to seeing you there.
