WHY: In a effort to continually update members on mechanical, regulatory and operating issues, the RPCA hosts an annual conference every January. Located in a different city each year, the conference normally includes seminars, networking & social opportunities, shop tours and occasional railroad tours.

The guest speaker for the Saturday evening banquet will be Jim Wrinn, Editor of TRAINS Magazine and a lifelong Railway Preservationist.

You are sure to enjoy the planned activities outside the seminar schedule. Thursday night will feature a special event on the LM&M Railroad. All proceeds go towards the Fuehring Fund for future leaders and will help offset the cost for several “under 30” members to attend the conference. Friday will feature a day long trip with our friends at the Whitewater Valley Scenic Railroad. We will be able to host several Seminars in their newly built shop. Friday night will be a special experience as we enjoy an evening reception at the recently remodeled Cincinnati Union Terminal. Sunday will include a trip to the National Museum of The US Air Force. This has been described as a “must see” tour.
