Welcome to NER Conventions

NER conventions include clinics, operating sessions, layout tours, prototype tours, model contest and model showcase, as well as non-rail related tours and activities. We seek to provide a quality convention experience in a long weekend time frame and at reasonable cost for travel and lodging. Often the best part of the experience is meeting other members who share our interest in Model Railroading and building relationships that last beyond the convention. Join the fun and enhance your modeling at an up-coming NER Convention.

Our next NER Convention, Lakeshores 24, will be September 19-22, 2024 in Rochester, NY. The team from the Lakeshores Division is working hard to bring you the quality of a convention that you have come to expect. Click the link above to see what is instore for you in Rochester.

The Region Convention Committee led by Vice President Dave Insley  assists Divisions in planning and implementing NER Conventions. Contact Dave if you would like to join the planning committee or host a future convention.

Planning is underway for the 2025 Convention in Concord, NH, hosted by the Seacoast Division. Check back on this site for updated convention information.
