Register for St. Louis Meeting

The 2018 Annual Meeting in St. Louis, May 30 to June 3, includes two train trips. One will take place at the Monticello Railway Museum and the second will be a circle tour of the Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis trackage starting from our hotel, St. Louis Union Station Hotel. The Terminal Trip will use two of the three rail crossings of the Mississippi River in St. Louis. We are planning some great presentations during the evenings.
