You don't want to miss this one! If you want to see a lot of equipment running along with more steam engines than you could hope to see anywhere else then you'll want to attend our Large Engine Meet, officially scheduled for August 5th - 8th. The reason I say officially scheduled is due to the fact that we are aware of numerous individuals who plan to attend, with some showing up as early as August 2nd! And don't forget, you don't have to have a large engine to attend and enjoy the festivities. The event this year will allow many of us who have been holed up at home over the past year, due to the virus, to meet with friends who you may have missed during this time period.
We know of several vendors who are planning to attend and for those vendors who would like to set up a spot to show their wares, we'd be happy to find you a place at the track for you to do so.
We will also have a food truck this year, Thursday through Sunday, to allow those who would like to spend more time on the rails to do so.
While we don't have our extension completed yet, you should be able to begin to see the excavation of the new right of way going in, including some areas where track panels have been placed.
So be sure to bring your lawn chairs, tents and also bring those extension cords if you have an electric engine! We have also been working to get some coal in for the event as well, so if you need a few buckets get with Dick or one of the volunteers to see how to acquire some of those black diamonds for your engine.
One last thing, if you'd like to volunteer to help us keep things running smoothly please let me know, either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just come see Dick or me when you show up at the track.
We're looking forward to seeing you all and hope you have a safe trip out to Coshocton!
