  • Wix Facebook page


The Mid-Atlantic Railroad Prototype Modelers (MARPM) meet was first held in 2013 in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area. It joined the growing ranks of small, intimate meets across the country catering to advanced model railroaders interested in prototype-inspired or prototype-faithful modeling.

Our meet is organized and run strictly by volunteers, with registration fees going to offset the expenses.  RPM meets appeal most to advanced model railroaders, but all modelers with an interest in the faithful modeling of prototype subjects are welcome.  We hope you will join us for our next meet!


MARPM19 clinicians will include 

Dave Abeles, Mike Baker, Doug Chapman, Ted Dilorio, Andrew Dodge, MMR, Paul Dolkos, Jim Dufour, Butch Eyler, John Greene, William Hanley, Eric Hansmann, Todd Hermann, Ralph Heiss, Benjamin Hom, Tom Jacobs, Bernie Kempinski, Bryan Kidd, Randy Laframboise, Marty McGuirk, Hal Miller, Lance Mindheim, Mike Pulaski, Dave Ramos, Ramon Rhodes, Bill Schneider, Richard Shulby, Jesse Smith, Travers Stavac, Mat Thompson, MMR, and Jack Trabachino.


MARPM18 registrants can participate in operating sessions on John King's Baltimore & Ohio, or Jeff Mutter's Erie Lackawanna Scranton Division.


Bring your models!  A highlight of MARPM is always the locomotive, rolling stock, structure, and diorama models brought by attendees.  Space is free, first come, first served.
