2004 St. Louis RPM Meet

Photos from the 2004 St. Louis Railroad Prototype Modeler's Meet, held on 21 Aug 2004 in O'Fallon, IL.

This event was staged as a "test". I hosted the meet in a small, inexpensive location to determine if the St. Louis modeling community would support an RPM meet. I would have considered this meet a success if we got 45 attendees, but we were surprised to get well over 90. With that in mind, Dan Kohlberg and I have continued to host the meet through 2011. All photos by John Golden.
