GNRR Headquarters Tour - Update

Thu, 10/09/2014 - 10:30am - 11:15am

There has been overwhelming interest in the Georgia Northeastern Railroad tour planned for October 9.  Unfortunately, the number of requests to participate far outstripped GNRR space and resources.  Due to increased traffic, FRA and Homeland Security restrictions, and the tight quarters of the GNRR Marietta facility, we must restrict the total number of guests to 15.  The only fair way to do this is first-come, first-serve.

The attendee list shows the first 15 people that sent requests, minus those folks who generously volunteered to sit out so that others could attend.   Also, this tour is for NMRA Piedmont Division members.  So if you are not a Division member, your name is not on the list, regardless of when you sent your request.  Again, if you are not on the attendee list, you will not be allowed on the property.
