From the Editor's Desk
The Annual Convention at Huron is hereby declared a success! Huron is a unique and fascinating area, and there were several aspects of the meet that made it stand out. First, from the perspective of the modern railfan (which I am), is perhaps the overall friendly and great treatment we got from the DM&E. The tour guides were friendly, helpful, and showed an obvious pride in their railroad. The DM&E is a fascinating road, built out of the ashes of the C&NW’s Alco Line across the upper-Midwest’s prairies. If nothing else, it was nice to see good old SD40-2s working freight across South Dakota’s grasslands.
Besides the railfan opportunities, Huron is away from the general hectic lifestyle of the major cities, and while meets at St. Paul, St. Louis, and the Chicago area have been great and have offered much of interest that only large cities can offer, Huron was a change of pace—almost a slight step back in time.
I can now chalk up the Alco Line as another area I unfortunately missed while it was under the C&NW flag. Though one can’t do everything, Alcos on the prairie is perhaps one of the key events of the late 1970s that escaped my attention. The new coTours on tal line a few years later in Wyoming is another, but with Huron the Alcos should have ensured that an Alcophile like myself should have made a visit. But, alas, like many others I now depend on the views from others’ cameras to live the past. Thankfully, the likes of Roger Bee, Bruce Black, Rick Mills, Norm Priebe, Mike Schafer, Larry Zeutschel, and others have provided us a glimpse into that era.
Almost every year I think something like “that was the best convention ever,” and then the next year turns out to be thoroughly enjoyable. Maybe they’re all “the best.” Next year I’ll probably be writing a glowing report from Eau Claire, but don’t take my word for it—especially nine months in advance—start making plans now, and don’t miss an opportunity to revel in the C&NW’s past. Eau Claire is one of those special places, and I’m sure you will be pleased by the activities taking shape for that convention.
In this issue we’re proud to present a list of our contributing members on pages 20–21, and hope to see your name there next year.
Wherever you are along the line, wishing you… the Best of Everything!
