Check out these raffle items, all donated by our sponsors.  Any one of these packages could be yours for as little as one ticket!  Tickets sold at the registration desk at the event.  For a closer look, visit the raffle page.

Five well-known modelers will open their home layouts to MARPM attendees, including Lance Mindheim's CSX Miami, FL and Los Angeles Junction RR, Bernie Kempinski's Port of Los Angeles and U.S. Military Railroad, Andrew Dodge's Colorado Midland, Jack Keene's Delaware & Hudson Susquehanna Division, Don Marvel's B&O Norton, WV, and David Vaughn's Nickel Plate Road, Kentucky Western Division.  See more on the open houses page.

Bring your models!  A large model display area will be available, and MARPM attendees enjoy seeing their fellow modelers' work.

In addition, MARPM 2018 will feature specialized vendors, plentiful raffle items, and casual camaraderie that have been part of our meets in the past. Visit this site often for updates.

MARPM18 will take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Baltimore - BWI Airport. This freshly renovated hotel has excellent space for our event, in-house dining and bar, and a location close to the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, Amtrak, and BWI airport.


Well-known modeler and clinician Bernie Kempinski has stepped forward to take the reins, but we need volunteers and vendors!  It will be hard to fill the shoes of Norm and Daylene Wolf, who have relocated to Utah, so if you have some time to help in advance or onsite, please use the Contact page to send us a message.

And make sure to join our Facebook group for the latest details and updates.
