One of the guys who didn't get to go the first time around has taken it upon himself to plan and hold a 2-part Road Rally that will look at the eastern 2/3's or so of the line.
The first part, to be held this September (date still to be determined) starting in either Sandusky, or near Akron, and following the line toward the other point named above. Among other things, Mr. Rauli is working to get access to the diamond site at Wilmont, something neither the first DBC&W/DC&S trips had, nor did the following PO&N trip.
The second trip, to be held in the Spring of 2018 (again, the date is still to be determined), will start at Sandusky and work toward Port Huron. Personally, I missed the east end trip the first time around, but I've been told this trip will feature a new water stop near Roseburg, the trestle site near Ruby and will wrap up at the Port Huron and Detroit Railroad Historical Society's facility in Port Huron Township.
At this point some of the details still need to be worked out, including dates. A date should be decided upon soon, and will be announced as soon as possible at that point. We are looking for an idea as to how many people might be interested in participating in the event. For those not able to post on this board, similar announcements will be made on railroadfan.com and Facebook.
Thank you for your interest.

P.S. Billy can't access his account on this board, so I'm posting the information for him. As far as I am aware, Billy's taken the initiative on this one and (with some help) this should be just as much fun and educational as the rallies David C. hosted in years past.
