In 2014 our spring Meet will continue to expand on our tradition of excellence. This year we are bringing in three well-known Santa Fe experts and modelers.  In addition to our regular white elephant sale tables and our auction, Train Control Systems will be returning to our meet and will demonstrate their new, revolutionary “WOW” diesel sound decoders as well as the latest innovations on their steam decoders.

The official sponsor for this year’s show is Train Control Systems.

John Signor Researcher and author of the acclaimed definitive work entitled the “Los Angeles Division” will be joining us.  John will also share his expertise gained thru years of modeling as well as his knowledge and experience on general railroading areas as well as specific Santa Fe topics. John will be bringing copies of his new book the Los Angeles Division for sale and has agreed to autograph all copies.

Bill Messecar Bill will be presenting a new clinic on how he modeled the Third District of the Los Angeles Division. This will include both freight and passenger operations and photographs of his model of the Pre-Cooler structure in the B Yard in San Bernardino. Bill will also be presenting a clinic on the San Bernardino Local passenger train which operated between Los Angeles and San Bernardino.

Stuart Forsyth Will give a presentation entitled Cajon at War: San Bernardino Bomb Plant and Rialto Backup Ammunition Storage Depot built during WW II.  Stuart presented this to the Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society's Mini-Meet in San Bernardino two years ago and is giving an updated version to the Riverside (CA) Historical Society this Aril. (Note: Jared Harper’s Alma Branch presentation has been rescheduled to next year’s meet)

The Train Control Systems Crew is sponsoring the meet and will be joining us to introduce their new “WOW” diesel sound decoders. They will also have the new Version 3 of the steam sound decoder which includes many new features.  You will not want to miss hearing these incredible decoders!
