The 2021 O Scale National Convention in Denver, CO was one of the first post-lockdown train events. It was brought together a group of dedicated OS2R modelers for a wonderful train show and more. Thanks to Convention Chair Bob Kjelland, his committee, and all who worked hard to make it a success. All rails did, in fact, lead to Denver!

The convention attendees really made the show! They were treated to a busy trading hall, inspiring clinics, special layout tours, and the always awesome Colorado railroad attractions, as well as a wonderful presentation by Ed Dickens, the head of Union Pacific’s steam program, banquet speaker David Stewart, creator of the Appalachian & Ohio.

The 2022 O Scale National Convention is still in the planning stages. Keep an eye out here for updates!

The Convention’s story is best told in photographs:



The registration table was run by many wonderful volunteers.
