All aboard for a convention to celebrate the joys of the railroad!
Train hobbyists will converge in West Palm Beach this week for the Florida East Coast Railway Society’s fall convention.
The convention is based at the Embassy Suites hotel on Belvedere Road from Thursday through Sunday.
It will include tours of railroad operations at the Port of Palm Beach and the Florida East Coast Railway yard in West Palm Beach where participants will be allowed to climb into the train company’s newest locomotive, the General Electric ES44SC.
An All Aboard Florida senior vice president, Eugene Skoropowski, is the scheduled speaker at the convention’s Friday night dinner.
On Sunday, the convention will host a public viewing of a model railroad from 9 a.m. to noon at the hotel.
