Planning for the first ever Central Pennsylvania Shortlines RPM is coming along! If you are on FaceBook, please follow our page.

We have a great venue in the Bricktown Museum and the crew has been hard at work on their HO scale layout representing not only the East Broad Top but also the PRR main line from Mount Union through Huntingdon. There will be plenty of time between clinics to see the layout in operation.

We'll kick off at 1 p.m. on Friday and run through 9 p.m.

Unable to find model railroads for open houses, we've added two more clinic slots on Saturday. Clinics will now run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

As of this writing, we have 10 of 12 clinic spots filled. If you would like to present a clinic, please contact Jerry Britton at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

On Sunday, both the Broad Top Area Coal Miners Museum and the Friends of the East Broad Top Museum have agreed to hold special hours for our group, from 9 a.m. until noon. Both are located in Robertsdale.

We then plan to be on the 1 p.m. excursion of the East Broad Top Railroad.

So please put the CPS RPM on your calendar for July 14-16, 2023. Registration is $25 and will be limited to 50 attendees plus staff and clinicians.

Matthew will be at RPM East in Youngwood, Pa., March 24-25th and will be taking advanced registrations. Online registration will open in May.
