Summerail 2018 Presentation Sked Set

The presentation schedule for Summerail 2018 to be held Aug. 11 in Marion has been set.

Thirteen multimedia programs featuring music and images will be presented at the Palace Theater in downtown Marion.

Ticket are $25 and include admission to the train show and sale. A train show only ticket is available for $5 at the door.

The first program session will start at 1 p.m. A dinner break will be held between 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. when the second session will begin. The programs will end at approximately 10 p.m.

The train show will be open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

White River Productions will host a catered dinner at Marion Union Station featuring Skyline chili. Tickets for that dinner are $12 and available for purchase on the day of the event.

It will be the third time that Summerail has been held in Marion. It was held in Cincinnati until 2016 when it moved to Marion due to construction at Cincinnati Union Terminal closing the auditorium where the event is held.

Although the move to Marion was intended to be temporary, the show organizers decided to permanently relocate there because of the attractiveness of the venue, which has ample seating and can accommodate more visitors than did the theater used in Cincinnati.

The list of presenters and the names of their programs are:

  • Richard Baldwin and Don Toon – Richard Baldwin’s Greatest Hits
  • Charles Dischinger – What A Beautiful Sound
  • Chris Haines – Railfanning As A Family
  • Mike Harting – Great Lakes Iron Ore Roads
  • Mark Llanuza – Erie Lackawanna’s West End
  • Jeff and Andrew Nelson – Wisconsin Central
  • George Pitarys – A Taste Of Maine
  • Mike Raia – 50 Years of Railfanning
  • Pete Ruesch – Pete’s Potpourri: A Year In Video
  • John Ryan and Paul Swanson – The Land Of Enchantment
  • Brian Schmidt – Time Of My Life
  • Brian Sellers – Cincinnati’s Shortlines & Streamliners
  • Pat Sweeney – SoCal Surfliner
