    Our Next Meeting:  Meetings have Moved!!  The May meeting will be held in our new location in the newly renovated Founder's Room at Chicago Union Station. The room is located in the Southwest corner of the Great Hall, sharing the same entrance with the Legacy Lounge. Years ago, this area served as the station's barber shop.

     The Member’s Meeting will be Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 7pm

     TO BE SPECIFIC, IT WILL BE “PACIFIC”    (Program by George Strombeck)

    During the 1960’s there were twelve different railroads that all used the word “Pacific” in their corporate name, such as Northern Pacific, Union Pacific, and ten more with abbreviations of CP (Canada), PGE, SP, WP, NWP, PE, T&P, MP, CStP&P, and (my favorite!) CRI&P (Rock Island).  I have visited all these railroads, rode their trains, and will show my slides of their colorful passenger and freight trains!  Only the Union Pacific survives, as all the rest have either merged away or are bankrupt!
