The NMRA National Train Show will be in Atlanta this July 14-20, 2013. This is one of the closer NMRA National meets in recent years and a good time for clinics, meeting vendors and seeing layouts. Also, most SIG groups have their annual meetings at the NMRA National. These include OPSIG, LDSIG, ACWSIG and many more. Details at the NMRA2013 site.
