Upcoming Events

The next showing of McCook's Landing in scheduled for 11 August in Charlottesville, VA. The layout will be set up in an open house as an NMRA James River Division monthly event.  For more information see http://jrdnmra.blogspot.com/

On September 13 at 8:00PM, I will be presenting at talk at the Mid-Atlantic Railroad Prototype Meet on Modeling the USMRR Aquia Line. This will be an in-depth look at the history,  design, evolution, and  construction of my home model railroad. The talk will take place about 2 miles from the actual prototype location, so it will be easy for attendees to visit the nearby state park to see where the Landing used to be located if they wish. For more information see http://www.marpm.org/   If the weather cooperates, maybe General Haupt will show up.  For folks heading north on Sunday from the MARPM , I will have the layout open for visit. Please reserve a spot with me ahead of time if you want to visit.

The next day, September 14 at 11:00AM  I will be presenting the same talk at the B&O Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. This talk is open to the public, though admission to the museum is required. While there you can check out the rail gun models I built for the museum. Of course, they are overshadowed by the best collection of actual Civil War era rolling stock and locos in the world.

In October 11 and 12, Mc Cook's Landing will be on display at the MER Convention in Rockville, MD. I will also be doing two talks at this convention.  For more info see https://home.comcast.net/~candp2013/
