Enjoy the challenge of operating sessions on railroads such as: 


Bill and Rose Webers’ sprawling
​Union Pacific

​​Early registration is just $55 for Rail and $40 for Non-Rail—remember, that includes a great banquet and Tony’s wry humor!

​The host hotel is the Radisson Hotel along the South Beltline in Madison, close to restaurants, shopping at West Towne Mall and many other nearby stores and the Madison Hobby Stop and is a short drive from the Capitol and downtown attractions.

​For more information visit the convention pages in the drop-down menu above and, as they say, Watch This Space for more details. Questions? Email: Capitol400@charter.net
