Apparently you missed my December 10 e-mail announcing the dates and location of the 2008 Convention. The dates for the next 2 NWHS Conventions are posted on our web site under the new Events Calendar. It was also announced that the schedules and registration forms will be included with the next issue of The Arrow.

I was just wondering what is happening with the convention? sually we are informed by now of expextations and events planned for us and the expenses incurred by this event. Just wondering so plans can be made. Most vacation time needed to be in by Dec 31st, so schedules and reservation can be made by spouses and other family menbers.
An update of time, place, and $ sure would have been helpful in an timely and organized manner.

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.
