O Scale National - Denver 2021

The O scale community will head to Denver June 17-20 next year for the annual convention of all trains scaled 48 to the foot. This will be the main event for O scale modelers looking for great layout tours, modeling clinics, and hundreds of vendor tables loaded with the news products as well as treasures going back for more than 70 years.

"Colorado offers an amazing destination for families as well as O scalers," says event Chair Bob Kjelland. "Denver and the Front Range are blessed with world-class museums, great local foods, lots of microbrews, boutique shopping, and much more. The Rocky Mountains minutes away and equally packed with outdoor activities to experience," he says. "Of course, Colorado is also home to numerous narrow- and standard-gauge train rides and museums."

Denver is home to a major airport that quickly connects the east and west coasts to the heartland. Amtrak's California Zephyr connects Chicago and San Francisco to the Mile High City.

The committee is finalizing negotiations with the convention motel to secure an affordable facility with access to public transportation.The registration form will be available soon.
