Important: Admission to all events is by advance registration (except "at the door" registration for the Transportation History Expo). All registrants will be checked in by name and must wear their name badge during each event. Any changes to the names of attendees must be made through KL&L. This policy also applies to anyone purchasing an Early Admission Registration Package from Transportsim on eBay - any changes must be made through KL&L.


Friday, May 10, Train Ride

A KL&L Chartered train will board at 9:45am for a 10am departure from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Regional Train Station in Pittston, PA for a trip over the Reading & Northern Railroad to Jim Thorpe, PA, with a return at approximately 4:30pm. Seating is in refurbished coaches with restrooms. Snack/beverage service will be available in the dining car. Please note that transportation from the hotel to the station is not provided (a charter bus would double the cost of the trip). If anyone does not have their own vehicle, please contact Dave Hamilton at to arrange for a carpool.

To add train tickets to your registration, click on the "add to cart" button at right. You will be taken to the Paypal shopping cart, where you can change the quantity to the number of tickets that you would like to purchase. If seats are sold out, you will be returned to the Convention page.
