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!


MARPM23 clinicians will include Chris Adams, David Bott, Martin Brechbiel, Jerry Britton, Doug Chapman, Shannon Crabtree, Ted Culotta, Ted Dilorio, Andrew Dodge, MMR, Jim Dufour, Steve Funaro, Todd Hermann, Ron Hoess, Benjamin Hom, Tom Jacobs, Bernie Kempinski, Marty McGuirk, John McLaughlin, Lance Mindheim, Dave Oppedisano , Ramon Rhodes, Mike Shylanski, Tony Sissons, John Stralka, and Fenton Wells. Read descriptions on the clinics page.
