CRHS Rail-BQs are an entire day of food, fun, and of course, trains!

This event will be held at Oliver Twp. Park in Newport, PA. This park offers a large picnic shelter, wide open space, and a completely unobstructed view of the Pittsburgh Line. A pair of PRR signals stand adjacent to the park making great photo props. We will also hold a general membership meeting, and will also have softball games in the field throughout the day. If facilities/time permit, there may be slide shows in the evening, after dark.
We'll have plenty of food, (burgers, hot dogs, fries) and drinks will be provided free of charge (but donations are graciously accepted to offset the substantial cost to the society.) We will also be bringing the full Conrail Shoppe (models, t-shirts, DVD's, and more).
Bring your wife, husband, kids, neighbors, friends; let's make this the biggest and best Rail-B-Que yet! We hope to see you at this, one of our most exciting membership events held twice every year!
Take U.S. Rt. 322 to the exit for PA Rt. 34 South towards Newport. Cross over the river and turn left on 4th Street in downtown Newport. Stay straight (do not follow Rte 34 to the right), then turn left on Perry Street. Park is at the intersection of Perry and 3rd Streets.
