AAPRCO 2019 Convention (Albuquerque, New Mexico)

Oct 23

AAPRCO’s 42nd annual convention is scheduled for September 16-17-18-19, 2019 at Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Amtrak is unwilling to operate a special train for our convention, so participating cars will travel to/from the convention site via the Southwest Chief.  Since a Chicago – Kansas City short haul coach operates as the last car of the train, we have requested Amtrak to “blank” that car line on the days our cars will be moving, so that participating private cars traveling between Chicago and Albuquerque can operate on the rear of the train, rather than on the head end of the train positioned between the locomotives and the baggage car.  Although Amtrak has not granted formal approval of our request, they have noted favorable consideration.

Amtrak has indicated that the Southwest Chief will continue to operate as a thru train between Chicago and Los Angeles at this time, but with an uncertain future commencing in fiscal year 2021.  We want to show our support for this route and, per our traditional national rotation, we are due for a Western convention.  There are plenty of attractions in  Albuquerque and nearby Lamy and Santa Fe.

Mark your calendar and save the dates.  MOONLIGHT DOME + BIRCH GROVE, HOLLYWOOD BEACH, NORTHERN DREAMS and SIERRA HOTEL are currently offering trips to the convention.  If you are interested, now if the time to book your space with these these participating car owners.
