Regular listeners know we like Railroad Prototype Modelers meets. We think the RPM movement is one of the most important, and positive, things to happen in this hobby in the past couple of decades.
And we’ve had a number of guests on The Model Railway Show who are involved with organizing or promoting these events – including Joe D’Elia, who is responsible for the upcoming RPM Conference in Illinois. He was my guest on Episode 21.
It’s important to note that Tony is more than just an excellent modeler. He’s also a partner at Signature Press, which publishes beautifully researched and presented railroad histories. Serious modelers know Signature Press is the place to find top-notch prototype information on common car types such as PFE refrigerator cars and billboard refrigerator cars, Southern Pacific freight cars (in five volumes), Pullman-Standard freight cars, the Magor Car Corporation, and more.
