Iron Triangle Express Bus Trip
Sat, May 21, 2016

Sold Out - Now Accepting Wait List Folks!

Our 2016 bus trip will take us north to the new Iron Triangle Rail Park in Fostoria, OH, on special tours at the award winning Allen County Museum in Lima, and to visit 3 premier full-scenicked layouts. All venues are new to our tours. See publicity slides for visuals of our exciting destinations.

This trip is available to the first 44 folks that sign up. Registration is limited to Division 7 members and their spouse or guest. Those under 18 years old must be accompanied by a supervising adult. The fee is $65 per person. This should be another fun event to rare/exclusive attractions.

Registrations opened on Dec 29 when the January Oil Can was emailed and posted. All 44 seats were sold by Jan 9. However, we are still accepting names for the wait list. The registration form is here as well as in the Jan 2016 Oil Can. Contact John Burchnall or Merlyn Jarman for info.
