Mini Meets are one-day model railway events for members of the CMRS and usually include clinics, displays (Show and Tell), related activities, and sometimes lunch.

Other events, such as the following, are sometimes combined with a particular mini meet:

  • Annual General Meeting of the CMRS - AGM info.
  • CMT's (Calgary Model Trainmen's) Fleamarket

CMT Annual Fleamarket

The 2017 Fleamarket is sold out, no tables remain. We will accept names of potential vendors who want to be kept on standby in case of any cancellations.

The pages on the old calendar are rapidly flipping over. It’s getting closer- the arrival of the Calgary Model Trainmen’s Annual Fleamarket.

Buyers- there will be lots of bargains, if past Fleamarkets are any indication. Arrive early. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy the one model railroad item you have been chasing for years. Nothing is more frustrating than finding that one item walking out the door into the collection of someone else! Don’t be late!

Potential vendors- Surely you are among the legions of model railroaders who has acquired too much stuff over the years! Here’s your chance to thin out the collection. Rent a table or two to reduce your surplus (or make room for more additions!).

Tables at the Fleamarket rent for $20 for a standard 2’ X 8’ folding table. Don’t miss out- as of this writing less than 2 tables remain unsold.

The Fleamarket is taking place on Sunday March 5 at the Glenmore Inn, located on the corner of Glenmore Trail and Ogden Road. Time is 8:30 am to 10:30 am. Again this year, the CMT Annual Fleamarket is being held in conjunction with the CMRS Spring Mini Meet.

To book a table or for information, please contact me at or call 403-201-4937.
