Key, Lock & Lantern holds its annual meeting and convention each year in the northeast, where the group's first railroadiana swap meet was held in 1973. The KL&L Convention is different from railroad hobby shows, as it is a smaller gathering of serious historians and collectors, where sharing knowledge is equally as important as trading memorabilia. While a fair amount of railroadiana changes hands at the swap meet and auction, the most valuable aspects of the convention are the educational and networking opportunities. Photos of recent conventions are posted on our Facebook Page & Flickr Page.
