MOW will have an excrsion on the famous City of Prineville Railroad on Sunday, May 19, 2013. Prineville is in central Oregon near Bend. We will run out to the end of line in the morning and return for lunch in Prineville. After lunch we will do another round trip for a day's total of about 72 round trip miles. The Prineville Railroad excursion is sandwiched between two PRO runs. The first is on Saturday, May 18, in Lakeview, Oregon and is a run to Alturas on the Lake Railway. The EC is Bill Andrews (541) 472 5153, contact him to sign up. The second is on Monday, May 20, on the Mount Hood Railway in Mt Hood Oregon and the EC is Rich Wilkins at 541-806-6400. Prineville is located about 4 hours from Lakeview and two hours from Mt. Hood according to Google Maps. We are encouraging all to take advantage of this three-day mini tour. Our set on in Prineville will begin at 7:30 and we will try to leave by 9:00. We can accommodate those who may be a little late so try to include Prineville in your weekend. The fee is $110 and Narcoa rules apply. Boots and long pants are required. Contact EC Dave Balestreri at email@example.com or 916 531 7536, or John Haverty at HavertyConstruction@yahoo.com or 916 769 1912. The opportunity to ride three railroads in three days and on a weekend doesn't present itself too often. Please take advantage of the organizer's efforts to put together an excellent motorcar event.
