Lansing Lashup 2018
On October 11th through 14th, 2018 we sponsored “Lansing Lashup 2018”, the annual North Central Region Convention.
Here’s a video of some of the activity:
The Convention was certainly a success! The final attendance was 184, of which 16 were on a one day pass, and 17 were new RailPass NMRA Members. We thank you, one and all, for being there!
Special thanks to our Banquet Dinner Speaker, Chuck Geletzke. We greatly enjoyed his presentation drawn from his experiences working on the railroad. His books about his adventures are available here.
