Efin, i didn't mean that late. I just thought this might start at 8AM or so. That's why i said that.

South Station at Noon sounds great. I can make that with no problem.

One small problem, can someone pick me up a photo permit, or will i go without???

Ok, I thought you meant you were not going to be able to make it until later in the day(mid to late afternoon). That is good for you though, you can stay for at least some or all of the trip.

A suggestion to those who will be riding, it might be wise to buy a T One Day Visitor's Pass for the trains if you don't already have a combo or rail pass.

I would LOVE to come kids, but problem is, that the MIAA Softball State Final Championships are on that day at Worcester State College. So, the only way to come see j00 @ll would have to be if there's a rainout or postponement set by the MIAA, and in that case, I can then join in the railbuffing fun :-)

Wish i could remember everything i want to say at once :) taht way i don't have to double post :(

The reason i said about late is the first train from Fitchburg is at 6:50AM. I can stay as late as we all ride around as long as i make the last train home.(Just let's not end between 7 and 10, as that is a LLLOOOOOOOONNNNGGGG wait between the 7:30 train and the 11:30 train

In the last two years, the plaza at Government Center was used for the "meet-up" in my experiences. There, at the "steaming kettle" Dunkin' Donuts AND Starbucks are located, side-by-side! It's less congested and easier to spot interested parties! Our meeting time was noon or twelve-thirty. Short walk from North Station.

Mini-Meetup on Friday evening, June 18?

Postby Ron Newman » Mon Apr 26, 2004 7:13 pm

I'd like to meet some folks to take a few last rides on the Green Line elevated (Haymarket-Science Park) on the evening of June 18, before it's shut down for good. Anyone else up for this?

The last night of the old Washington Street Orange Line el was jammed with people taking One Last Ride.

Well, the day is soon coming up. Is everyone still game for the Meet-up? If so, what are the final plans?

I may or may not be there. I just got a job offer from Air Wisconsin yesterday, and I will be relocating to the Fox Cities area of Wisconsin during June. I am planning to ride that el before it closes for good.

Sounds like more and more like a plan.....I may even be able to do this, as all my schedules (work, theatre group, drum corps )all seem to agree with each other for a change...

Yes, it's a go for me also. No gigs have popped up so it's looking for good for me.

I'm in, but I still need to get the photo permit. Does anyone know the best way to go about doing this? I'm definitely calling tomorrow, but at this point late Friday is the only time when I can go out and get the permit since I get out early.

I was at the Riverside fantrip last year with Ken and a few others (couldn't revive my old account since I forgot the password, etc., so I had to create a new one). I was Bryan, the guy with the blue Platipus Records shirt and no camera. This time, I picked up a nice used SLR.
