MARP’s first meeting of 2018 will be held on Saturday, January 27, at the Haslett Public Library.  Please note that the meeting will begin at 10:30 am, a half hour later than usual. As has been our custom for the first meeting of the new year, Tim Hoeffner, MDOT Office of Rail, will update us on developments for passenger trains in Michigan and the Midwest, as well as what to look forward to in 2018.

The meeting will also feature a panel discussion on Engaging Younger Generations in Passenger Rail Advocacy.

MARP regrets that we are no longer able to obtain the favorable terms that allowed us to gather, in recent years, at the Grand Trunk Western Depot in Lansing to kick off our activities for the year ahead.
