Great Northern Railway Historical Society


Members look forward to the GNRHS convention held each year in a city along the former route of the Great Northern Railway. Convention locations alternate between GN's Lines East and Lines West. Our conventions are a great opportunity to connect with fellow Great Northern enthusiasts, historians and modelers. They are also a great place to meet Great Northern veterans.

Our conventions run Saturdays through Wednesdays and have a combination of the following activities:

The Convention is also where the GNRHS Board holds its annual Board Meeting (open to all members) and where we conduct our Business Meeting. The Convention is the place to meet your Society's Directors and Officers.

Special convention apparel is available for purchase each year and convention goers receive a free convention cup as part of their convention package.

Specific info about the upcoming convention is published in the March Goat and on this website. Registration runs from March through June. Late registrations are accepted, but tours are on an availability basis only. Apparel is only available during the normal registration period.
