I am excited about the new Rail Fest Office. With the graciousness of NebraskaLand National Bank Rail Fest has an office. The office is located at 1020 N Jeffers on the North side of North Platte. We are across the street from the Do-It-Center and just North of the North branch of the NebraskaLand National Bank.
The office will provide us with a place to conduct Rail Fest business, distribute Bailey Yard tour tickets and host our meetings. As Rail Fest has grown we’ve needed a place of our own. We see this as another step in making this international festival sustainable with an identity of its own. We still have some work to do before the office becomes operational. We are making arrangements for a phone, internet access and some computers. A coffee maker would be a nice addition to the office as well.
We will be establishing office hours. I’m sure the office will become very busy especially the weeks before Rail Fest. Watch for our grand opening.
