Southern Served the South is the title of a slide program that Akron Railroad Club member Mark Demaline will present at the ARRC’s end of year dinner on Dec. 2.

The event will be held at the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s restaurant at 3732 Darrow Road in Stow.

The program will feature Southern Railway freight, passenger and steam excursion action between the late 1970s and late 1980s from the Washington D.C., area, through Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and Northern Florida.

The end of year dinner is limited to 32 attendees due to the small size of the meeting room in which it is held.

Tickets to the event are free and may be obtained by contacting Marty Surdyk at

The tickets will also be available for distribution at the Nov. 17 ARRC meeting.

The end of year dinner will begin with a cocktail hour at 5:30 p.m. and we’ll be ordering from the menu at about 6 p.m.

Payment for drinks and meals is individual settlement.
