It’s been a while since we’ve posted on our blog space. Thank you for your patience and, as a treat, we have a guest blog from Paul Ulrich, the social media coordinator from our good friends at the Winnipeg Model Railroad Club. He says Jason Shron from Rapido Trains is coming to Winnipeg for a special presentation. Take it away Paul!

You better watch out, you better not cry! You better not pout, I’m telling you why: Jason Shron is coming to town! The WMRC is hosting a special presentation by Jason Shron on Wednesday, February 15 at Canad Inns Polo Park, 1405 St. Matthews Avenue, at 7:00 PM. 

Jason is the founder and president of Rapido Trains. Rapido  has produced some of the most accurate models based upon Canadian prototypes. He is also the person with a rail car in his basement. In addition to that he is building a multi level railroad in his garage based on a portion of the  Kingston Subdivision in the 1980’s.
 Jason’s presentation will be about his home layout. He has used some novel techniques in the construction of the layout, from bench work to wiring. Hear about his dream layout and why he chose to model the fall and mainly passenger operations. Jason will also give some insight into the model manufacturing industry and where he sees the hobby is going.
It’s free, it’s open to the public, and no reservations are required. So be good for goodness sake, or you mom won’t let you go!
