In 2017 the Monon Railroad Historical-Technical Society, Inc. (MRHTS) will be gathering

in Southern Indiana in Salem, Indiana.


September 29 through October 1, 2016

Convention Update 07-17-2017

Just a reminder that the forthcoming THL will have the last  registration form to be sent out to you. One can either copy it, or the centerfold can be removed as its intended. There are 7 king and 5 queen remaining rooms reserved for the society, at the Cobblestone Inn.  Please contact, Sheila for the Monon discount. If you have held off buying the society cars, we will be blowing out older inventory at a ridiculously low price during the convention, but you will have to be there to participate. Mont Switzer will give a clinic  featuring these models. This year for the price of the convention, there will be 2 meals and 2 guest speakers. You will not be disappointed.  A bus trip, to places, that access, is quickly being restricted and closed for viewing. A side trip is planned so you don't have to come alone if you chose not to. Salem is billed as our World Headquarters of the society. Come see what we do, how we do it, and where we do it, at the annual meeting. There are several other surprise's that await you at this convention.
