For Gordon Hall Days, we have scheduled some special speakers who are experts on various aspects of the Railroad. All speakers will be in the large tent behind Gordon Hall. There is no charge for these presentations.
On Saturday, the 11th of June, John Guidinger will be speaking two times. The first will be at 10 AM and he will be telling us the History of the Chicago-Detroit Mainline. His second talk will be at noon, and this time he will speak on Rebuilding the Amtrak Chicago-Detroit Railroad. Then at 3 PM on Saturday, Clark Charnetski will share with us a talk on the North-South Commuter Rail Line (also known as WALLY, after the counties - Washtenaw and Livingston). N-S Rail is being investigated as a way to provide a transit option for travel between Howell and Ann Arbor.
On Sunday, at 11:30, Rahn Stokes will do a presentation on The Third Generation: Life on the Railroad. As a Michigan Operation Lifesaver Authorized Volunteer, Stokes will be bringing a Michigan Operation Lifesaver display with take away materials which we will have on the second floor. On Sunday at 2PM, Debra Meadow will be giving a powerpoint presentation on the Underground Railroad in Washtenaw County.
