September 2, 2010

Hello, all:

Please mark your calendars for a Norfolk & Western/Norfolk Southern mini-meet at the former N&W Railway station, Boyce, Virginia, milepost H46-1, on Saturday, October 2.  You may come earlier in the day for some railfanning on the Hagerstown District or watching CSXT traffic at Shenandoah Junction about 30 minutes to the north.

This date coincides with the Town of Boyce Centennial celebration.  There will be a parade at 1:30 PM and cake cutting at 5 PM.  Trains will be held outside of town during the parade, so there should be plenty of late afternoon and evening activity.

A bring-something-to-share cook out will begin at 6:30 PM.  Meanwhile, the NS chatter and sharing are encouraged; horseplay and Rule G infractions aren't.

There is an outdoor electrical outlet for plugging in laptops or radios in the parking lot.  Wireless Internet access is available, but you'll need to get the encryption key via prior email.

For those wanting to stay until dusk and into the evening, there will be a digital slide show of railway photos beginning around 8 PM.  If you have some good N&W or NS material to share, please volunteer to show your photos.  The evening will likely conclude around 11 PM but can continue as long as there are willing presenters.

Hope to see you next month,
