NERW Meet 2014

I know, it is still a little while away, but it doesn't hurt to start early !!*ok*!!

So where are we going for the NERW meet in 2014? There are a few requirements for destinations:

- Train related !DUH!
- Within easy travel distance for most of us that will come (which means North-East US/Eastern Canada)
- Visit should not take longer than a single day
- Train rides available (if possible)
- Works in good and bad weather

There might be some additional requirements that come up later. So get to it, come up with some recommendations... and do not just state the name, but explain why we should have the 2014 meet at your proposed location.

Illinois Railway Museum, Union, Ill.

The largest railway museum in the US, located near Union, Illinois. They have special days when you can actually have a ride on a diesel, steam and electric train, like the first Sunday in August. Within reasonable distance from PA, NY and ON.

More info on their website... http://www.irm.org

It is not about voting on ideas (yet), it is about getting ideas. :)

Who knows what is out there that would be a good place to meet for a bunch of train crazy people, so keep the ideas coming...

Strasburg or Baltimore.

Heck if Strasburg is a one day event, I might stay for a second day and ride the NEC to Baltimore and make the 2 mile walk to the B&O Museum. That would be a heck of a weekend...
