Welcome to Peoria! We continue to focus on this location as we are now just days away from the 2011 Annual Meet.
While I have enjoyed reading the history of the C&NW in and around Peoria, I was a bit surprised at how much rail activity there is today. The region caters to four of the Super Seven Class 1 railroads and seven regional/short line operators. I certainly hope I have something for my photo album after the meet.
With limited space here, I would like to touch on a few other items. First, the 2012 C&NWHS calendar is now available (see ad page 62). I’d like to think that this calendar is one of the best to be produced.
Second, Dennis Norris has some updated information on C&NW-related models. Please take time to read his fine column on page 7. Also, we have a bit of information on the M&StL reefer that will be available at the meet (see page 11).
Third, a list of the Annual Meet presenters can be found below. This is a terrific group, so you won’t want to miss their shows.
Finally, I’m in the process of developing some “standing features” for the magazine to promote greater participation among members. I hope to give some details in my next column, so stay tuned and be ready to dust off some of your best images. See you in Peoria!
