Ron Einarson becomes a Master Model Railroader

Ron Einarson, seen here displaying at the No. 1 Northern Division's annual train meet in 2015, has just been named Master Model Railroader by the NMRA.

It is with great pride that we announce that our own Ron Einarson has been designated a Master Model Railroader (MMR) by the NMRA. Ron has been a member of the WMRC since 1983, and has been a member of the NMRA for almost as many years. He has also served as superintendent of the No.1 Northern Division  and as the President of NMRA Canada.

Ron is MMR #593. The title of MMR will follow after his name at all NMRA functions and any written material about him. The NMRA presently has over 18,000 members, and in it's entire history there has been only 593 MMR certificates awarded, so this is a rare honour indeed!

The MMR is an achievement program, and each applicant must earn a series of seven certificates for their work before they receive the title. Ron has worked very hard to earn this title, and his modelling work has always spoken for itself. Way to go, Ron!


  1. Congratulations, Ron! Well deserved.

  2. Ron is just the latest in a string of Master Model Railroaders from Winnipeg -
    - #15 Jock Oliphant
    98 Stafford Swain
    100 J Moe Smith
    255 Arnold Walker
    328 Fred Headon
    Ron has joined a very select list of modellers. Very well done.

  3. For a city it's size, Winnipeg has a very impressive number of MMRs!
