    I want to start planing for some meet attendance. (Need to gather up a bunch of rolling stock/etc!)

    Is there a still a central gathering point for regional meets and schedules somewhere?

    Thanks for any input.

    The Mid-Continent Region, NMRA, has listings in their publications as they get them. It is NOT an exhaustive list by any means - http://www.mcor-nmra.org/region/MCoR_Publications.php So hardly anything for next Spring's meets.

    Springfield Mo has theirs coming up on March 23rd, Springfield EXPO Center, 635 St Louis St

    Thanks for some input, fella's. Appreciate it.

    Hopefully, regional modelers will chime in here at Frisco.org when there's a schedule forthcoming. I have no way of finding out when there's a meet otherwise.

    Thanks again.

    Also, okc has a great hobby shop called whistle stop trains. Springfield Mo also has a nice shop, but i have no idea if its still open.

    Thanks for the reminder about Whistle Stop. Been decades since I was there.


    Thanks. Wichita is a bit out of my radius, and the tolls add up to $20 (round trip) as I recall, but I'll certainly consider it.

    Have they got anything going on in Enid? With UP, BNSF, Farmrail/Grainbelt and the museum, I would hope they would have something going on there.

    Also, what date in November is the Joplin show? Where I presently work, I need to make plans well in advance for stuff.
