Come Meet The People Of TrainWeb.com!
Monday, April 7, 2008
At TrainWeb.com we receive an awful lot of e-mail from our website visitors every day.
Unfortunately we don't have time to answer all of it.
Sometimes it takes us days to respond even to the important e-mail because there are so many important e-mails that
require our attention.
But, we really do exist at this end and would really like to have more time to interact with the visitors to our
If you have ever thought of coming out to visit TrainWeb in person, there may be no better time than on Monday, April 7, 2008!
And, if you could arrive a day or so earlier and / or stay a few more days afterwards, all the better!
Monday, April 7, 2008, is the only time that we know for sure that so many TrainWeb.com people will all be in one place at
the same time! This would be your best opportunity to come to meet everyone. We will all make a special effort to try to spend
as much time as possible on Sunday evening, April 6, 2008 and all day Monday, April 7, 2008, with those of you that come to
visit us in person.
Be in La Plata on Monday, April 7, 2008 and you will witness the historic achievement of One Million Miles of Amtrak Travel
by Chris Guenzler as the eastbound Amtrak Southwest Chief arrives into La Plata. We'll all be at the platform to welcome the
arrival of the train at 9:57 AM which will immediately be followed with an arrival party at the new Silver Rails Event Center.
Come to the Chris Guenzler Millionth Amtrak Mile Celebration Dinner at 6 PM and we'll all be there all evening and have a chance
to stop and talk with everyone that has come to visit! We'll just pretty much all meet
and mingle from 6 PM until whenever. So, if you've ever wanted to have a chance to sit down and talk with anyone and everyone
from TrainWeb.com as well as other TrainWeb.com fans, this is the time and place to do it!
There are just 30 rooms at the
Depot Inn & Suites and the last time we checked, there are still some
rooms available. We wanted to give TrainWeb.com visitors a chance to book a room before the News Releases start getting
published and the rooms get filled up.
So who will be there?
The four partners that own and operate TrainWeb.com: Steve Grande, Ray Burns, Shivam Surve, and Barbara Cepinko.
Chris Guenzler, the "Mr. Amtrak", "Mr. TrainWeb", "The Million Mile Train Man", who will be achieving his
Millionth Mile of Amtrak Travel on that day, a TrainWeb Correspondent whose travelogues are frequently featured on TrainWeb at
Carl Morrison, also a TrainWeb Correspondent, whose travelogues and photos are frequently featured on TrainWeb at
Tom Marshall and Kelly Marshall, the owners of the
Depot Inn & Suites
and partners with TrainWeb.com in the venture to build the
Silver Rails Resort.
You will also have a chance to meet a number of the members of the Southern California Train Travel Meetup Group
who will be in La Plata on April 7, 2008, for the Chris Guenzler Millionth Amtrak Mile.
As we get details of other people affiliated with TrainWeb that will be in La Plata that day,
we'll update this page with those details.
This will also be a wonderful opportunity to tour the Exhibition of Amtrak History where the colleciton of the
Amtrak Historical Society is on display in one of the two ex-Amtrak U.S.Mail Freight Cars.
You will also have a chance to enjoy the new Silver Rails Event Center both during the arrival party and
at the 6 PM Celebration Dinner. Plus, a presentation of the plans for the Silver Rails Resort will be provided.
If you have not previously stayed at the Depot Inn & Suites, this will be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy and explore
the hotel which is a railroad museum in and of itself! You can also spend time at the Train Watching Lookout Point that
is now enclosed and heated with nearby restroom facilities for year round comfort watching 80+ trains daily on the BNSF
mainline, including the 2 daily (east & west) Amtrak Southwest Chief trains.
A tour of other La Plata features is planned along with an optional van tour on Tuesday to ride the
St. Louis Metrolink Light Rail System and visit the Museum of Transportation.
And last, but not least, you'll get a chance to take a tour though the TrainWeb.com / TrainParty.com building!
