July 5, 2014 is a day you will want to place on your calendar because that is the date of the 5th Annual PSRR Swap Meet & Train Show. This year’s show will be just as good if not better than previous years. All of your favorite vendors will be in attendance and, of course, your favorite little railroad will be in operation giving train ride. On top, our fine neighbor BNSF always puts on a superb show. More than one NS heritage unit has passed by PSRR on unit oil trains. Be sure to bring your camera! I hope to see you all there!
The new schedule has been added for 2014. Be sure to check it out!
This Saturday, Dec. 14, is the club’s annual Christmas Party. Setup starts at noon and be sure to bring a dish to pass! The club is furnishing the main course so be sure to bring sides. After dinner we will break out the model trains and the old railroad films from yesteryear. Hope to see you all there!
