The Board of Directors of the Friends of the 169 is a diverse group of enthusiasts, who live all over the United States. We meet monthly by conference call and we have an annual meeting, usually at the National Narrow Gauge Convention. Please join us this year at the 37th Annual National Narrow Gauge Convention, Wednesday, August 30, at 4:00 PM, at the Marriott Tech Center Hotel in Denver. For room location, please stop by the Mudhens layout in the Atrium. We’d love to meet you and share our progress and restoration plans for Engine 169 and Business Car B1.
