2017 PNR Convention

The 2017 Convention, Spokane Falls Express, successfully concluded on Saturday, June 10, with 110 attendees at the closing banquet. Over 150 individuals, including 35 non-rail attendees, registered for the convention.

The Convention Committee sincerely thanks NMRA President Charlie Getz, PNR President Jack Hamilton and the PNR officers and committee chairs, the clinicians, volunteers, contest evaluators, home layout owners, area railroad clubs (Evergreen Model Railroaders, Inland Empire N-scalers, INSHOME, and River City Modelers), the Inland NW Free-Mo group, and the Mt. Rainier N-Scaler Club for helping make the convention experience truly memorable.  The door prize donors, hobby shops in division 5, and timetable advertisers helped make the convention possible. Special appreciation goes to CXT Concrete Ties, the BNSF Hauser Fueling Facility, Highline Grain, and the Inland NW Rail Museum for hosting our prototype tours, and to Inland Empire Tours for conducting our non-rail tours.

Look for the upcoming editions of The Goat and the PNR Switchlist for reports on the convention awardees and contest winners. River City Modelers has posted videos and photos from the layout room at the convention on its Facebook page.

The 2018 PNR Convention, the Stump Town Express, will be held from May 30 to June 3, 2018,
at the Red Lion Jantzen Beach, in Portland, OR.
