“Pere Marquette Steam Engine” Field Trip – Saturday December 1, 2018

This is a reminder that MMPC is sponsoring a field trip to photograph the Pere Marquette steam engine operated as the “North Pole Express.”  We plan to meet at 8:30AM in the Burger King parking lot I-69 and M-52. That will give us enough time to get in place before the train arrives on its way north. All are welcome to join us.
