— GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE MMRF GROUP:
— The Mainline Model Railroaders Fellowship (MMRF) is an organization that supports and promotes the hobby of model railroading. We are a group of model railroad enthusiasts, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and promote the hobby by inviting independent and club model railroaders to participate in special events.
Model railroading can be a very enjoyable hobby, with many interesting facets. A person need not be an expert to enjoy model trains, all you need is the desire to participate in the hobby. Our organization has members from all age groups that come from many different professional backgrounds. We have a variety of model railroading experience from the young to the seasoned veteren. All model railroad scales are represented.
The MMRF organizes the annual Great Edmonton Model Train Show (GETS). Our members volunteer their time and talents to make the show one of the best in Canada.
WHO WE ARE:
Mainline Model Railroaders Fellowship (MMRF) was started in 1997 to bring an annual train show back to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; and to bring all independent and club railroaders together for special events. We consist of beginner to expert modelers, and support all scales, from smallest to largest.
To promote and increase the enjoyment of model railroading, and all that it encompasses among fellow model railroaders and railway enthusiasts. As well, it is our goal, as model railroaders, to showcase the hobby to newcomers and encourage participation in what can be described as one of the most enjoyable hobbies that can exist today. It is in our best interests to assure the hobby of model railroading continues to grow and prosper, so it can be enjoyed by present and future generations.
WHAT WE DO:
We have set-up many events in our journey to promote our hobby including the highly successful Great Edmonton Model Train Show, as well as bus tours to other train shows. Future plans include layout tours, how-to-clinics, slide shows, and swap meets.
