It keeps you up to date on what's happening to the parts of the Milwaukee that are incorporated into other railroads You'll learn who has Milwaukee Road materials to sell and who might want to buy what you have to sell. Your subscription to The Milwaukee Railroader is free with your membership.
MRHA Annual Convention
Each year, usually in June, at a place which the Milwaukee Road used to go, MRHA members get together for a convention. There is the usual business meeting. But the weekend is also filled with historical seminars, modeling workshops, and an annual dinner that features a speaker prominent in Milwaukee Road history. Where the location makes it possible, tours are conducted so you can see how and where the Milwaukee ran. The annual meeting of MRHA is strictly for members only - and of course, for members, spouses and guests. You won't be able to enjoy this memorable weekend with other followers of the Milwaukee if you are not a member of MRHA!
