Ian Dunn, Editor of the Australian Model Railway Magazine recently commented:
    So what is the purpose of the convention? The name gives the hint: our conventions are directed towards modelling the modelling the railways of a particular state or period. While exhibitions cater to a broad spectrum of modellers, conventions are, by intention, narrowly focussed on a particular system, location or era.
    They do not primarily deal with modelling techniques
per se. Their principal role is the dissemination of knowledge about the prototype and how that knowledge can be applied to the production of a scale model railway whixh can be visually identified with a particular real railway. ['Comment', AMRM, October 2008, p 3.]
