    California Short Line Railroad Assn Fall Meeting and Train Ride 11/12/2018 San Diego, CA Exciting news concerning this year’s train trip: Instead of holding this trip on November 8 – 9 as an overnight round trip between Los Angeles and San Diego, it will run as a day trip departing from and returning to San Diego on Monday November 12. We will still run on the scenic portion of the Surfliner route between San Diego and Los Angeles. Here’s the best part: The ASLRRA Central-Pacific meeting will convene in San Diego at 1700 on November 12, so this year it will be super-easy to attend both events. In fact, CSLRA will be inviting ASLRRA attendees to join us on the train trip, creating new networking and social opportunities. The trip will be held on an 8-car BNSF business car consist, so there will be plenty of room for this trip to be larger-than-usual. We will also hold a pre-trip cocktail reception on the San Diego waterfront from 1630 – 1830 on Sunday November 11, again with ASLRRA attendees invited to join us. Watch your email and the CSLRA web site for additional information. We anticipate opening event registration in mid-April. We look forward to seeing you on the trip! Add to Calendar
