We have a lot of things planned for both you and your spouse. We want to keep you busy while you join us this weekend with model trains, tours, contests or even rail, wine, shopping or just enjoying the clinics in the hotel, contests, auction the open home and club layouts or enjoying the layouts set up in the hotel..

We at the division level have been working hard for two years at putting together a convention we know you will enjoy and remember for years to come.

Click here to make reservations at the convention hotel.

Be sure to mention "NER" when booking for our special rate.

Our hotel has a great restaurant attached and remember breakfast is included in your room price. There are plenty of places to eat nearby if you wish. Route 17 is filled with all types of places and some are fairly close. Check out your convention booklet for a complete list.

As for the convention itself, The Contest room will be open for judging models and photos. If you didn't submit something, stop in and check out what others did. We have a lot of talent in the NER.

Of course we'll have Model judging as well as Photo judging so show us your talents
and enter your best. Click here for room hours.

There will be a Chinese style auction so please stop in, check it out, buy your tickets and pick your prize. We hope you win.

Be sure to check out our One Time Event Summary as well as our Day by Day Event summary. So you don't miss anything and can adjust your visit to see and do as much as you can.

The computer age is here and one thing we have added for this convention are QR codes. The little square scan codes you scan with your cell phone and it instantly gives you the directions to the location you wish to go to. For your convenience, we have a short summary of how they work which you can download by clicking here.

Be sure to come to our Saturday evening Buffet Banquet, complete with a cash bar and hear our guest speaker, Mr. Bernard Kempinski .Click on his name for his Bio.

Thank you for joining us and have a great time. There will be volunteers in the hotel to assist you in any way they can, be it a shuttle from the hotel to NJ rail or how to use QR codes to get somewhere, we're here to help. It's a good time, good folk, and a great hobby.
