Announcing Special Guest Speaker
Bernard Kempinski presenting at RMMBC 2018

Your RRMBC committee is excited to announce that Bernard Kempinski will be presenting at the Railway Modellers Meet being held May 4th to May 6th, 2018 at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby Campus.

Bernard is an active model railroader who has worked in many scales from N through O. He is proprietor of Alkem Scale Models who has built many models on commission for museums and individuals. Bernard is a popular speaker at model railroading events and a freelance writer who has written dozens of magazine articles and several books on model railroading, many of them on layout planning. His latest book from Kalmbach Publishing is “Waterfront Terminals and Operations”, released in 2017.

Bernard will be presenting a clinic on rail/marine modelling as well as a special post-luncheon talk titled “High Tech Approaches Applied to a 19th Century Railroad”. In his talk he will cover the application of laser cutters, 3D printing, photo etching, battery power and casting techniques to model an unusual U.S. Civil War era steam prototype. Bernard’s presentation promises to be a fascinating and interesting look at what is possible with the state of the art techniques available to all modellers.

Our mission statement

We will advance the practice of railway modelling in British Columbia by providing a forum where model railroaders can meet, exchange ideas and enrich their involvement in the NMRA and SIGs.
