The Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum is celebrating 80 years of preserving Rochester’s rich railroading heritage in 2017! Join us for our annual museum banquet where we celebrate the accomplishments of our volunteers and welcome a guest speaker to discuss our local railroad history.
We are pleased to announce our guest speaker will be none other than Doug Eisele. Besides being a life-long railfan, Doug Eisele has just wrapped up a 23-year career at Genesee Valley Transportation. He worked as a conductor, engineer, and superintendent at the Depew, Lancaster & Western and the Falls Road Railroad through the 1990s, and later because director of Operations, Safety & Regulatory Compliance for all five GVT railroads. While his slide collection dates back to 1968 and numbers more than 250,000, he has promised to share only a few choice selections during our banquet program. We are pleased to have Mr. Eisele join us, as you’ll learn from his presentation that the story of GVT’s growth and development is tied closely with our own.
Join us at the River’s Edge Party House, located off Scottsville Road, near the airport. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for cocktail hour (cash bar), dinner seating begins at 7:00 p.m. Award presentations, guest speaker, and dessert service follow buffet dinner. Proceeds from the event go towards funding our various museum activities.
Seating is limited! Purchase your tickets today.
