    Howdy Bradley,

    Thanks for posting these events. It looks like a full summer, indeed.

    Perhaps we could get a group of Frisco enthusiasts together during one of the sessions this summer, sort of an FMIG and railfan homecoming.

    Best Regards,

    So what kind of event is going to be staged with a $25 admission? A banquet? I understand that people balked at the fairly nominal admission to the Frisco Museum of $2 or $2.50. I've gotten weary of of going to train shows around Springfield just listening to the people complain about vendors prices and the snack bar and soda pop prices. I imagine the "General Public" will stay away in droves from this one. Just my opinion...

  3. Well, being up here in the Northlands, unfortunately I don't have much prospect of attending, fee or no fee.

    However, I note that the $25 entrance fee appears to apply only to the June 26th program at the new "History Museum". I don't see any indication of an entry fee for the other events such as the "Old Timers" roundtable with ex-Frisco employees, or the Missouri State University professor's talk about the 1922 railroad strike. Anyone who's interested and closer at hand could call the Library or the museum at the telephone numbers supplied in the link above.

    Did any chatboarders attend the Frisco "event" at the old Barth's store building in Springfield last night?

    Just got back from vacation and was happy to see this. I can only hope! Back B.P. (before parenthood) I'd bounced the idea around with some KC area folk - maybe Rick McLellan (anyone know what he's up to these days? I hope he is doing well)?

    Outside of the Aug. 1st date and after school starts up in late August/early September, if others are going to be gathering, it's reasonable for me to swing down to Springfield. I noticed right away the "All events free and open to the public!"

    Any one between COU and SGF that would want to carpool? I can only think of Brad Slone - I'd be happy to pick you up en route if you're game!

    Best Regards,

    Thanks for posting the website Bill. I want a picture of my 4 year old son in his engineer cap in that Frisco engine.
