Wild West Night at April ARRC Meeting

It will be “The Wild, Wild West” night at the April Akron Railroad Club meeting. ARRC Bulletin editor Marty Surdyk will dip into the club’s Dave McKay photographs collection to present a program of images that Dave made during his many travels out west.

We will follow the Santa Fe across the Heartland to New Mexico then do the same with AT&SF steamer No. 3751, during its cross country trip in 1992.

Then we will head to Colorado & Utah for a look at the Rio Grande. After that, we will go to the far west and finish our journey at the Tehacapi Loop and Cajon Pass. There will be lots of great Kodachrome slides to view.

The Friday, April 25 ARRC meeting will begin at 8 p.m. with a half-hour business meeting followed by the program at approximately 8:45 p.m. The club meets at the New Horizons Christian Church, 290 Darrow Road, in Akron.

Some members gather at about 6 p.m. for dinner at Duffy’s Grill, 231 Darrow Road. Following the meeting, members meet at the Eat ‘n Park restaurant at Howe and Main streets in Cuyahoga Falls for a late dinner, dessert or an early breakfast.

Visitors are always welcome at Akron Railroad Club meetings.
