Welcome to the IRFCA Convention Dashboard

The best place for all things related to the first ever IRFCA Convention (Pune, 26th Feb 2006). Navigate and find out about the conference schedule, sessions, venue and accomodation.


The first ever IRFCA Convention is was the best event of the year for railfans. Meet and discuss all things IR. Yes, that's right. No using hushed tones when you want to say the words WDM2, WAP-4 etc.!

The sessions and presentations covered technical topics, railway photography, trips, travelogues and much more. Heck, there was even a quiz where you could win some fine prizes!


The IRFCA Convention '06 was held on 26th February at the Hotel Regency, Pune. And as you guessed it, the venue is very close to the station. We guaranteed a WDG-4 horn hearing at least once during the day!

Next year??!!

The next IRFCA Convention — for 2007 — will be held at Chennai. It has been decided to make this an annual event and to hold it in different cities each year. The exact dates will be decided by the organizing committees for each city, but it will almost certainly always be early in the year, January or February. Watch this space for announcements for the next convention.
