Buy your ticket now for the #1 Vermont rail event of the year! VRAN's 2018 Annual Dinner will be held the evening of Thursday, Nov. 8th at the Capitol Plaza Hotel & Conference Center in downtown Montpelier, Vermont. This year's theme: 'I'd Rather Be On the Train!'
With the recent arrival of 12 self-powered Rail Diesel Cars in Vermont, enabling reliable and affordable regional rail service for commuters, there is much to celebrate. Two of All Earth Rail's recently renovated Budd RDC's will be parked on the RR tracks behind the hotel. We will host a cocktail hour onboard the RDC's for those who arrive early.
Join us for an evening of networking and fun with delicious food, live music from a swing jazz band, and the presentation of VRAN's annual Rail awards. Every participant will receive the new VRAN 'I'd Rather be On the Train' bumper sticker (pictured above).
"When [NARP] comes to Washington, you help embolden us in our efforts to continue the progress for passenger rail. And not just on the Northeast Corridor. All over America! High-speed rail, passenger rail is coming to America, thanks to a lot of your efforts! We’re partners in this. ... You are the ones that are going to make this happen. Do not be dissuaded by the naysayers. There are thousands of people all over America who are for passenger rail and you represent the best of what America is about!"
