Durfee to Take Us to Nebraska’s Sand Hills

Roger Durfee will present a program titled A Sandhills Journey at the August 25 Akron Railroad Club meeting.

The digital program will feature a look through some of Roger’s several trips along Nebraska Route 2 between Grand Island and Alliance, Nebraska, that often parallels the BNSF.

The rail line is a heavy-duty line that funnels mostly coal out of the Powder River basin. “I’ve returned to this area several times over the past few years as I enjoy the sometimes desolate scenery, a nice two lane road with minimal traffic, and a constant parade of trains,” Roger said about his program.

The meeting will begin with a short business meeting at 8 p.m. followed by the program at approximately 8:30 p.m. The club meets at the New Horizons Christian Church, 290 Darrow Road, in Akron.

Following the meeting, some members gather 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.
