Upland Strawberry Festival Recap

Brandon Carney’s Amtrak E8Amtrak 411 zooms by the circus in Upland, IN.

The club had a fantastic time as always in Upland, IN at the 2019 Blooms and Barries Festival. Bill Duncan noted that 14 different trains ran throughout the day. As always there were many that enjoyed the display. I’m sure the whole group is already looking forward to next year’s festival for all the fun of running trains! Well, and fresh strawberries too. Okay, a few of us might mostly look forward to that part… myself included.

The next modular setup is on the schedule for September 21, at the Castleton Christian Church Palooza. Till then enjoy some of these photos from Upland.
