2013 Pre-Convention: Fairbanks, Alaska
The 2013 NRHS Convention will take place in Anchorage, Alaska September 18 through 22. In addition, the Society will sponsor a pre-convention activity based in Fairbanks September 14 through 17. Coupled with numerous opportunities for individual tourism, this will be an excellent time to experience the sights of our largest state and the famous Alaska Railroad.
An unusual feature of the 2013 convention will be a four-day pre-convention program based in Fairbanks. First, there will be a weekend of local activities featuring a (very) rare mileage train trip and a variety of transportation history, from riverboats to antique automobiles to an operating narrow-gauge steam locomotive. On Monday and Tuesday, the NRHS will operate a one-way trip from Fairbanks to Anchorage, with an overnight stop at Denali Park. Just like the Anchorage-based trips, the train will operate on a more relaxed schedule than the regular summer-season trains to allow for all-daylight travel with planned photo stops along the way.
Detailed information on the pre-convention program and the convention is available here.
