NEREX Summer Solstice Excursion

Excursion fee: $485
EC: Keith Knowlton & the NEREX Team

NEREX is pleased to announce that once again we will be holding our Summer Solstice Excursion along the beautiful coast of Maine on June 22nd & 23rd. While the track will be familiar to many who have been on this excursion in the past, we are being hosted by a new railroad, Midcoast RailService, a division of Finger Lakes.
Our weekend will start with early seton Friday evening, June 21st, in Brunswick, Maine. Overnight security will be provided for the motorcars.
Saturday, we will head east out of Brunswick and travel to Wiscasset where, prior to lunch, we will leave our motorcars and be bused to the Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington narrow gauge railroad museum wwfry.org for a visit and steam excursion. After lunch we will be off to Rockland where the Summer Solstice Festival takes place from 4 to 8 pm. We will spend the night at the Rockland Harbor Hotel, one room per registration included. A Rockland Police Department security detail will keep tabs on our cars during the overnight. Distance for the day is 57 +/- miles. Distance between the overnight tiedown at the Rockland depot and our hotel is about ½ mile, with the Summer Solstice Celebration taking place on the main drag between the two. We will have a van available at our beck & call for any transport needs. Food options are plentiful on the main drag where the Summer Solstice Celebration takes place.
Sunday we return to Brunswick for setoff, in plenty of time for everyone to get an early start home.
Come celebrate the longest day of the year at a party in Rockland Maine with the NEREX Team.
