Coming Events

Next Meeting:    

 

 

We will hold our 2nd Saturday RFI meeting on August 8 at St. Andrew Methodist Church.  St. Andrew Methodist Church is located at 2560 Villa Avenue on the near southeast side of Indianapolis.  The church is on the southwest corner of Walker and Villa Avenues, midway between State Street and Keystone Ave.  Exit I-65 at Raymond St. south or Keystone Avenue to Walker. 

 

This month we will again require those attending the RFI meeting to wear masks and appropriately social distance as necessary.  We greatly appreciated the compliance of all 17 who showed up at last month's meeting.

 

This month RFI member Kim Heusel will be presenting material that he has recently scanned from his slide collection.   Some go back to the late-1970s, but the majority were taken in the early 2000s to around 2011.  The show will cover a wide area of locations from North Carolina to New Mexico and Wyoming, with plenty of coverage around Indiana.     

 

So please remember to mark your calendars for this month’s 2nd Saturday August 8th meeting!  Hope to see you there!

Summerail 2020 canceled

“It is with the deepest regret that the planning committee of Summerail 2020 are compelled to announce that it has been cancelled. This was not a decision made easily; however, in order for there to be a Summerail 2021, it had to be done. There is no way to socially distance a railroadiana show, nor the Friday night shows at Marion Union Station. While we could enable social distancing at the theater, the fact that there would be no railroadiana show, nor the Friday night shows, coupled with the hesitation of folks to travel and stay in hotels, it just wouldn't be Summerail. Summerail is an expensive production and if we proceeded and so few tickets were sold, there might not be a Summerail 2021. While this decision is most regretful, we hope you understand and will join us in 2021 to make it the best Summerail ever!”
