It is with great regret and sadness that we’re announcing the cancellation of this year’s ERA convention in Toronto, September 10-14, 2020. With the current lock-down, border closures, and likely longtime restrictions on gatherings of larger than 10 people combined with our older membership, the board of directors deem it prudent to consider rescheduling the convention to Toronto for September 9-13, 2021.

If you have already booked hotel and convention tickets, please await further instructions on both. We are working with the hotel as we speak. Mike Glikin, our treasurer, will reach out to you regarding your convention tickets.

We have a huge selection of Headlights in both print and PDF editions, plus the amazing Elevated Railways of Manhattan book, all available for immediate purchase online. Plus, our convenient Publication Sales section is cleaner and easier to use than ever before.
