Join Robert & Kandace Tabern with the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad and the Midwest Rail Rangers for a special "behind-the-scenes" look at the WGNRR's Bed and Breakfast Dinner Train. Thousands of people visit Northwest Wisconsin every year to experience America's only Bed & Breakfast Dinner Train. Experience a four-course meal cooked freshly aboard the train... followed by an unforgettable night in a historic railroad sleeping car. We will give you a look at the history of such cars as "Namekagon Dreams", "Aristocrat", and our 1912 open platform business car.
In our previous emails we had said we would move over to our Facebook page for a Q&A after the virtual program. This is no longer the case. The entire presentation and Q&A will happen on YouTube.
To access this virtual program, click on this link. We will be taking a Q&A via the chat box on the right side of the screen on YouTube only. Feel free to type in any of your questions and we will answer!
If you missed the livestream of Wednesday June 24, 2020 of the Wisconsin Great Northern Sky Parlor Car you can still view it by clicking this link. You do not need to have a Facebook account to view this.
Next meeting is set for September pending events. Watch this site for further news about our meetings and trips for this year and don't overreact. Good health and best wishes to all.
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.
