We had a great meeting at the Charleswood Legion last night. The place was packed with many existing members, a few visitors, and several old faces that we haven't seen for a while. It was perfect inspiration to get out and do some real railroading this weekend!
You can start by visiting the Assiniboine Valley Railway, who will be having their September open house. Hours are from 11AM to 5PM on Saturday, and from 1AM to 5PM on Sunday. Rides are $2.00 per person, but kids under three can ride for free! See http://assiniboinevalleyrailway.org/blog/ for more details. They're easy to find, at 3001 Roblin Boulevard, just west of Assiniboine Park. Look for the sign by the road!
WinNtrak will be displaying their N gauge modular layout at the Forks Market on this weekend as well. They'll be displaying from 9:00AM to 9:00PM on both days. You can reach their website by clicking here: http://winntrak.com/
