20th CENTURY 
RAILROAD CLUB


WELCOME!

PLEASE NOTE MEETING DATE AND ROOM CHANGE to 2/18/2020 IN THE BURLINGTON ROOM

The date of our February members meeting has been changed to Tuesday February 18, 2020, and we have been informed it has been moved to the Burlington Room in the Great Hall of Chicago Union Station. The Burlington Room is on the west side a ways north of the Founders Room. The program remains the same. This is a one-time change due to a scheduling conflict. Please advise others you may know who are not visitors to this website or the Club Facebook page. See you there!

An uncommon opportunity to experience the elements of deluxe rail travel such as was routine in years past is available through the agency of our trip 20-HB-1 The Louisiane. It involves a private varnish trip starting in St. Louis to New Orleans and return with a layover to enjoy the delights of that historic place. These trips have become more difficult to do so don't pass up the chance. See our Trips section on the website for full particulars and order form.

The full details are now set for trips 20-A St. Louis MO Adventure and 20-B Galesburg Railroad Days & Explore Peoria Option; see the Trips section for the full details and order forms in pdf format.

We need editorial and production assistance with The Fast Mail, so let us know if you can help, or know of someone who might. Editors wanted!

Changes have occurred at the former Midwest High Speed Rail Association. It now is the High Speed Rail Alliance, with the website being https://www.hsrail.org. The snail mail address is 4765 N. Lincoln Avenue Chicago, IL 60625; the phone number (773) 334-6758. There’s a petition available on the website seeking signatures to send to Congress to support high speed rail service in America. 

Your Club needs Board and Committee members to help make things happen. If you're not yet ready to make the full commitment to Board service you can help as a committee member with such things as trip planning, meeting planning and Fast Mail production. Please contact our office by email at board@20thcentury.org or phone us at 312-829-4500.

To see our Facebook page just click on the one of the F's on the top or bottom. It's still possible to read the material if you don't have a Facebook account, just click Not Now or the x on the upper right of pop-ups asking you to to log in.  Of course full functionality, including the ability to comment, like, and share requires an account.  

Due to rising costs of running the club and publishing The Fast Mail, the membership dues were increased effective January 1, 2020 from $40 to $50. The last increase was 13 years ago, January 2007.
