NEREX is pleased to again offer what had become an Area 1 tradition, the 13th annual "Snowflake" excursion. This "End of Season" last hurrah is a wonderful overnight excursion between Concord and Lincoln, NH. This excursion is hosted by two railroads in New Hampshire, the Hobo Railroad & the New England Southern Railroad. Total round trip mileage for the weekend is about 140 miles. Our trip takes us along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee and its' tributary rivers, over what has been billed as New England's smallest drawbridge, which we have to operate as it is normally open this time of year, through mountains, fields, and golf courses. There are several other bridges and trestles to cross as well. We tie up in Lincoln on one leg of the Lincoln Wye, which is about 200 yards from a newly remodeled, and very well kept, four story Express Inn. We have established a block of rooms for our participants for Saturday evening, one room is included with each registration. Additional rooms are available, at a discounted fee, for those requiring more than one. They offer a nice, included, continental breakfast on Sunday morning. NEREX will also be hosting a catered dinner on Saturday evening, right at the Express Inn, catered by Hart's Turkey Farm, a very popular regional restaurant. Hart's will be serving their "All American Buffet", a terrific turkey, ham and roast beef spread with all the fixins', and plenty of leftovers for sandwiches for Sunday. NEREX will provide everything needed for sandwiches. All part of this weekend package.
Seton and setoff location next to Interstate 93 in Concord, NH, is easy and convenient, and we typically get back to setoff around 2PM Sunday. Everyone is usually on their way home by 3PM. Scheduled dates are Saturday & Sunday, November 3rd & 4th. There will be a 35 car limit for this excursion.
We call it the Snowflake because any time after mid-October it could snow in northern New England. We will be watching the long range weather forecast starting 10 days out. These two railroads are mostly seasonal, which means, if it snows, the tracks won't be passable. We have been lucky for the 11 years prior to last year, but rain with freezing temperatures caught up with us last year and resulted in cancellation. Let's hope for better luck this year. As is NEREX policy, in the event of cancellation, full refunds will be issued to all paid participants. Dress warmly, as the brass monkeys will surely be covering up in Lincoln, NH on Sunday morning!!
For the convenience of those who are coming from "away", we have set up a block of rooms for Friday evening, 11/2, at the Comfort Inn located at 71 Hall Street in Concord, NH., 603-226-4100. These rooms are at a NEREX rate of $109.00 + tax. Make sure you ask for the NEREX rate when calling for a reservation. This rate is good until October 17th. The Comfort Inn is located about five minutes from seton.
Thank You for supporting NEREX on our final excursion of the season.
