The 2008 NWHS Convention will be held June 11-15 in Marion, Ohio.
Your convention hosts Steve Summers and John Munson are making final
arrangements right now.
Marion is located on the former Pennsylvania line between Columbus
and Sandusky. This line was purchased by the N&W in 1964 to provide a
connection between the newly acquired Nickle Plate and Wabash
Railroads and the Norfolk and Western. Even before 1964, this line
saw many trains of N&W hoppers carrying precious Pocahontas coal to
Great Lakes colliers at Sandusky, Ohio.
Our headquarters for the convention will be the beautifully-restored
historic Hotel Harding. The Hotel Harding is right up the street from
the Marion Union Station at the eight! (yes count 'em), eight-diamond
junction. The restored station houses both a museum and model
railroad. In addition, the Marion interlocking tower has been saved,
complete with the interlocking machine and will be open for your
inspection. If you like seeing trains in action, this convention is for you!
More detailed information will be mailed with the
January/February/March 2008 issue of The Arrow and posted on the NWHS web site.
