They did a very nice job of putting together excellent descriptions of the presenters and their presentations in the list of seminars on the website.

The Colfax Railroad Museum will be open during the convention. We are about an hour east of Jackson Street roundhouse, about 10 miles north of I-94. If you are interested in railroad china, we have the largest public display of dining car china in the world, along with a tremendous display of railroad artifacts, the oldest standard gauge mail car (Omaha Route) and over a dozen other pieces of rolling stock. Check out our website at www.colfaxrrmuseum.org or call us at 715-962-2076.
