First off, apologies for the cross postings -- we just want to get
the word out.
The Southern Pacific ng Historical Society annual conference for
2013 will be held in Tonopah, Nevada, May 2-5. The conference is
entitled: "Tonopah - the camp that changed the Carson & Colorado
Tonopah and Goldfield were the two mining camps whose boom 100+
years ago generated so much traffic on the railroad that it
necessitated the change of gauge north of Tonopah Junction.
The registration form and basic information about the conference and
the hotel being used is now available on the Society's website:
Go to the "Activities" page to find the link to the registration
Earlier this month we sent out the dates and hotel information to
our membership with the mailing of the Fall 2012 issue of the Journal
We are at this time preparing the mailing of the registration form
to our members and expect it to be placed in the mail on Friday.
In 2014 we will be back in the Owens Valley -- this time being based
at Lone Pine for a change.
