WILLARD TRAINFEST
OHIO VALLEY RAILCARS
Saturday, September 9, 2017
In support of the Annual Willard Trainfest, Willard, Ohio, OHIO VALLEY RAILCARS will display motorcars and have a short excursion on the Ashland Railway. The trip will be on the former B & O track from Willard to Plymouth.
Here is how this will work-- The Willard Trainfest is a one- day event Saturday, September 9 beginning at 10 am and running ‘til 4 pm.
They have displays all over town including in the city park, in the middle school, post office and in downtown streets, and shuttle buses move you from place to place. OVR will have a block or two to display speeders on Myrtle Avenue, the main street in downtown Willard. You won’t even have to take your car off the trailer if you don’t want to. Jim Heffley, Willard Train Fest Chairman, has assured me that they will have the cash prizes as in past years, and everyone displaying will receive a dash plaque.
If you can come by 10 am, great. If not until a little later, that is OK too. Judging will take place sometime during the day. If you can’t arrive ‘til afternoon you are still welcome.
At 4 pm we will move our cars about a block to the ASHLAND RAILWAY tracks and set on, have a safety briefing, and go south as far as Plymouth with a railway escort and return. Tow vehicle parking for the show and the trip is just a few feet from set on.
The railroad is paid a flat fee for this excursion so we need 14 cars at $25. each to make this event happen.
+NARCOA Insurance and compliance with the Rule Book and the OVR policy addendum is required. Ashland Railway may have additional rules for this excursion which will be announced at the safety meeting.
+High visibility safety vests or shirts and over ankle boots required (on excursion).
+All operators must be NARCOA certified and insured. Operators and passengers must sign NARCOA waiver.
