Now that it is spring time it is time to start thinking about the Prairie State Railroad Club’s annual swap meet and train show! This years event will once again take place at Plowman’s Park/Kenny Field in Big Rock, Illinois on June 29th. The swap meet includes vendors, operating modular layouts, and of course rides on the Prairie State Railroad. I hope to see you all there! Vendor registration is included below.
Just a reminder for everyone that the March 2013 meeting date is coming up. The meeting will be March 28, 2013 at the same location in Big Rock at the town hall. The meeting starts at 7:30 and I hope to see you all there.
