AAPRCO is working with Amtrak and BNSF Railway to plan our 2018 mid-year special train.  The current proposal for “The Black Hills Special”, which is subject to approval by all host railroads and subject to change, is as follows:

Participating cars cars will arrive at Lincoln NE on Amtrak trains 5 and 6.

May 18th:  Lincoln NE to Alliance NE via Ravenna NE.  Parked overnight at Alliance.  Western Bar-B-Que at a local ranch.

May 19th: Ravenna NE to Gillette WY via Edgemont SD.  Parked overnight at Gillette.

AAPRCO’s mid-year meeting and events will he held on May 23rd, and the mid-year board of directors meeting will be held on May 24th, at Denver.

Eastern cars will depart Denver on Amtrak train 6 on May 24th.  Western cars will depart Denver on Amtrak train 5 on May 25th.
