2014 Convention Tickets On Sale Now

Public ticket sales are now open for the 2014 NRHS Convention in Springdale, Arkansas on June 10-15. Highlighting this year's convention is three days of passenger train rides on the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad, traveling rail lines that don’t normally host passenger trains. All trains will exclusively be powered by the A&M's surviving fleet of vintage Alco locomotives, plus an Alco-led “photo freight” through the Ozark Mountains (including night photo sessions).
