ALONG THE CURRENT ROW-LATEST PROJECTS 2008

SOME OF OUR MEMBERS HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS RESTORATION FOR OVER 10 YEARS. AS A GROUP WE HAVE FINALLY RECEIVED THE RIGHT TO OPERATE AN EXCURSION RAILROAD BETWEEN FOLSOM AND PLACERVILLE. THERE IS MUCH TO BE DONE IN TRACK MAINTENANCE, PREPARING OUR LOCOMOTIVES AND ROLLING STOCK, BUILDING STATIONS AND FACILITY BUILDINGS FOR OUR OPERATIONS, ETC. WE ARE LOOKING FOR MORE VOLUNTEERS TO HELP WITH THIS PROJECT. THE FOLSOM RAILROAD MUSEUM IS OPEN ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WHERE YOU MAY SIGN UP AND FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR DIFFERENT PROJECTS. OUR GROUP MEETS EVERY TUESDAY AND THURSDAY AT 8:00 AM AT THE SHOPS IN FOLSOM.(FIND THE TURN TABLE AND YOU ARE THERE. LOOK FOR THE YELLOW AND THE WHITE PSVRR HI-RAIL TRUCKS AND THE OLD WAGON SHED NEXT TO THE BOX CAR-THAT IS OUR SHOP.) WE ALSO HAVE SATURDAY GROUPS THAT MEET EVERY OTHER SATURDAY. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT TASKS AND WE WANT YOU TO TAKE ON THE PROJECTS THAT APPEAL TO YOU. EVERYONE IS WELCOME! SEE YOU THERE! FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE EMAIL ME: JOJMAYER@YAHOO.COM
