Clinics

The Liberty Bell Special clinic program will feature presentations by talented modelers, authors, and experts from every aspect of model and prototype railroading. The clinics will vary in presentation style and some will include hands-on operating sessions to solidify the material taught in class. We’re lining up presenters from all over the Mid-Eastern Region and even a few from beyond. Whatever your interest, we’ll have the clinic for you.

Clinics at the Liberty Bell Special will be presented Thursday evening, Friday morning through evening, Saturday morning and afternoon, and Sunday morning.  Some of the clinics will be presented twice during the convention.

Below is a list of committed clinicians and tentative clinic titles or ideas.  Please understand that this is subject to change, especially this far out from the convention.  As more details become available they will be added to the chart.
