ARRC McKay Day Set for Aug. 6 in Berea

The annual Dave McKay Day of the Akron Railroad Club has been set for Aug. 6 in Berea.

Attendees will be treated to trains of Norfolk Southern and CSX and, maybe, the Wheeling & Lake Erie. Those who arrive early enough will be able to catch Amtrak, although it is likely to be dark when the passenger carrier comes through.

As always, the event begins when the first arrives and ends when the last person leaves.

Attendees are advised to bring a lawn chair and to park at the far west end of the parking lot for the Berea depot restaurant.

The event is named after the late Dave, McKay, who served as ARRC president for 12 years before stepping down in late 2004. He died in late December of that year.

    It is very nice to see my longtime friend Dave McKay honoured in this way. He was a very nice person and a dedicated railfan photographer.
