Railroad Steam Operations in China to be the Program at ARRC End of Year Dinner on Dec. 5

The Akron Railroad Club’s end of the year dinner will feature a digital program presented by Peter Bowler about steam locomotives in China.

The dinner will held on Saturday, Dec. 5 at the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s restaurant at 3732 Darrow Road in Stow.

The event will begin with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6 p.m. Attendees will order from the menu and it will be individual settlement.

We’ve reserved a party room for the occasion and attendance is limited to approximately 32.

Free tickets can be obtained from Marty Surdyk at the November ARRC meeting or via mail. Contact Marty at surdykm@aol.com.

Peter’s program, titled China: the Twilight of Work-a-Day Steam Railroading in the World, will feature photographs that he has made during his travels to China over the past several years.

Mainline steam railroad operations in China ended in 2005 during the modernization of the country for the Summer Olympic Games, but steam remains on a few industrial and branch lines.

The program will focus on those locations, which are scattered far apart across China as well as their railways, facilities, people, and towns or cities that support them.
