Complete Convention Agenda

The R&LHS will be holding its 2018 Annual Meeting in St. Louis, May 30 to June 3, for what promises to be another great event. This year we will be staying at the historic and newly restored St. Louis Union Station Hotel under a group rate of $139 per night. Ask for the Railway and Locomotive Historical Society Annual Meeting when reserving your rooms. The room cut-off date is May 2, 2018. we will be visiting the Monticello Railway Museum in Monticello, IL, The Museum of Transportation in the western suburbs of St. Louis, MO, and and the Melvin Price Lock & Dam on the Mississippi River on the same day. Registration is $395.

We also have two train trips planned. 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 St. Louis Union Station Hotel. The Terminal Trip will use two of the three rail crossings of the Mississippi River in St. Louis (if you want to get the hat trick, take the Metrolink over the Eads Bridge.) We have also been given permission to visit the Union Pacific Intermodal Facility at Dupo, IL and we are working on getting a second site tour as well. We are also planning on having some great presentations during the evenings and look forward to seeing many of you here in the Gateway City in 2018.
