Make a visit to New York City's High Line Park at Friday's Winnipeg Model Railroad Club meeting

A spectacular view of New York City's High Line park in the springtime.

Our resident globetrotter Tommy Kucera will present a short program on High Line Park in New York City. The High Line was a New York Central elevated freight line serving the Lower West Side of Manhattan. Abandoned for many years, the remaining 1 1/2 miles was converted into an elevated public park, preserving many features of the old freight line. Tommy will cover the history of the line and the park as well as presenting his personal 'walking tour' of the park

Award winning photographer Felix Lesiuk will also give a presentation on his recent rail fanning adventures he's had with his good friend Louis Lenz. 

Please note that due to health problems, Gerrit Vanderklok's presentation on the Digitrax Digital Command Control system has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled for a later date.

The fun begins at 7:30 PM at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard on Friday, February 12. The canteen will be open, and we'll have our ever popular model display and the 50-50 draw. Hope you see you there!
