For the month of February, we will not be meeting in in a back yard, but inside a 200,000 sq. ft. heated, covered space – The Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly VA.
We will walk through the museum and discuss and contrast rail passenger service and air commercial transportation. We will examine this subject decade by decade. When we complete this, we will migrate to the space hangar to discuss how railroads were critical to the success of the shuttle program.
While we will not be able to run trains, we will be warm and dry.
Plan for 45 minutes to 1 hour on concrete, so you should wear comfortable shoes. Please give a heads up email or call to Bill Krayer: firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 508-6461
Meals – there are several restaurants in the area and Shake Shack is in the museum.
The Museum is free, but parking is $15 per car. Consider carpooling.
