Year 11 for Railfest is in the planning stages.  Among the details you need to know are that the event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, September 2 and 3.  We are also looking at how to open up part of the event on Friday, September 1.  First Friday is a big event in downtown Scranton, and we may take part in it.  
 
The opening ceremony and the awarding of the Alan Sweeney Award will be key moments of the Saturday morning, and the excursions to Moscow will take place with the photo runbys in Moscow.  
 
With the big railroads being more strict on what they will and will not allow over their tracks, the event will most likely me a more insulated affair.  That is not a bad thing.  Seeing as the Delaware Lackawanna RR now has their business car,  Erie Lackawanna 2, the NYO&W 44 tonner is in the yard, and should have a new coat of paint, and it is possible that CNJ 0-6-0 no. 113 may be present in the Steamtown yard this summer.    This could make for one of the best exhibitions of railroad history for 2017.  Stay tuned.
