Just a reminder that if you are in the Spokane Inland Empire area this weekend – don’t forget to stop by the bi-annual Spokane Rail Show at the Spokane Fair & Expo Center/ 404 North Havana, Spokane – this Sunday, October 13th 9:30am to 3:30pm
The Train Show is sponsored by the River City Modelers with over 100 vendors and 200 plus tables of railroad related items for sale, model & toy trains, photos, books, toy autos & trucks, bridges, buildings. Train memorabilia - old lanterns, signs, china, linen, switch locks, keys & much more. Operating train layouts with a large HO Free-Mo layout and Operation Lifesaver. Free Parking, Food available. Bldg. A, B & C. Adults $6.00; Children 12 & under are free.
Also...don’t miss out on visiting an open house for one of the most notable HO-scale model railroad layouts in the Inland Empire. The Evergreen Railroad Modelers are having an open house – Saturday, October 12th 5:00pm to 9:00pm. 18213 East Appleway, Greenacres Shopping Center. Check it out!
I’ll be there at the show with my recently released “Spokane International Railway
” book, along with my “Great Northern Railway in Marias Pass
” and “The Milwaukee Road Connection – Spokane to Butte” books.
Stop by and say Hi! – my wife and I will be right next to Jerry Quinn’s desk at the northwest corner of Building C/D “Agricultural Complex.” I will be offering book specials and I’ll also have a bit of memorabilia and other stuff for sale.
My up and coming full-color Arcadia Publishing “Montana Rails – Mountains to Prairies”
is on schedule for a May 2020 release. I just visited with Ed Lynch and he is contributing many of his excellent images of the Milwaukee Road /Burlington Northern around Central Montana. So far, I have had many willing photographers coming forward to share scores of photos that have never been published. I’m certain the book will be a success.
Please stop by and say Hi! Hope to see you this Sunday.
BTW: I plan on attending this year’s Winterrail as soon as I can confirm reservations.
