Hotel & Directions


Clinics are the backbone of a model railraod convention. Several fascinating presentations will be offered on prototype and model topics. This listing may change often before the Mountain State Express begins. Specific presentation times will be provided with your registration packet when you attend. Many clinics will be offered twice through the event.

If you are interested in presenting your clinic, please contact clinic coordinator Eric Hansmann.
