TVRM Hosts Joint Historical Association Convention
The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum has hosted the first ever joint Southern Railway Historical Association (SRHA), Louisville and Nashville Historical Society (LNHS) Conventions and Railroad Prototype Modelers (RPM) meet at their Cromwell Rd Campus Sept 29-Oct 1. The convention combined seminars, modeling clinics, exploring prototype equipment, a charter dinner train and special speakers.
Models shown at the RPM meet are intricately and accurately constructed scale models of railroad equipment and structures typically requiring hundreds of hours to produce. The event was not open to the public, but to members of the respective organizations. Almost two hundred participants from throughout the United States attended.
The Tennessee Valley Model Railroaders operating model railroad layout in the basement of the TVRM office building on Cromwell Rd was open to the public.
