We have deliberately scheduled our conference to slot into the American Heritage Rail Alliance programme and annual congress. Those wishing to attend would fly with me to Durango on Sunday November 4th, where we would stay two nights, travelling on the iconic Durango & Silverton Railroad on Monday 5th November. On Tuesday 6th November we would transfer by road to join the HRA conference in Santa Fe. This culminates in a ride on the famous Cumbres & Toltec Railroad followed by a gala dinner on Saturday 10th November; details to follow. Return home from Albuquerque International Airport on 11th November, or later. DAVID MORGAN -PRESIDENT
