2008 St. Louis RPM Meet

Photos from the 2008 St. Louis RPM Meet, hosted by Dan Kohlberg, Lon Bathurst and John Golden at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville, Illinois on 15 & 16 August 2008. 200 attendees enjoyed the meet, and brought 1000 models for display. We provided 120+ door prizes, including locomotives from Athearn, Walthers/Proto 2000 and Intermountain. We provided 65 tables for vendors and historical societies, an operating FreeMo layout, and 38+ tables for models brought by attendees for display.

Clinincs were provided by Ed Hawkins, Tony Sissons, Dan & John Kohlberg, Dave Roeder, Brian McQuitty, Mont Switzer, Chad Hewitt, Pete Smith, Stan Rydarowicz, Clark Propst and Mike Moore, and Frank Angstead of Intermountain. A pre-RPM tour of the Gateway Rail Services facility in Madison, IL was also provided for attendees arriving early.
