EIIII~ O,~J ' r II. LIl~ I] Illlllllllll ll~ 13illlliitl tillllll ]l ] 6A Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Two tickets to ride subject of giveaway Trains and Travel Interna- tional, Inc., has donated two coach tickets for the Domes to Railroad Days-Feather River Express excursion train to the Portola Railroad Days Planning Committee. In addition, Chris David has donated two tickets for the Stars in the Barn. Both sets of tickets will be given away to lucky winners. These donations are being made to try and help the Railroad Days Events Com- mittee make up for a short- fall of funding for the 28th annual Portola Railroad Days. This event, along with many other programs, has had large funding cuts as lo- cal government and business people deal with their own shortfalls and a troubled economy. A ticket purchase of $20 could win the following prizes totaling $376 and help to promote this community tradition of Railroad Days. The train tickets are for the westbound tril3 through the Feather River Canyon, on the old former Western Pacific route. This trip his- torically coincides with the 100th year anniversary of the first through passenger train, which passed through Portola, while running on the newly completed track from Utah to California, on Aug. 20-22, 1910. This route has seen very few non-private passenger trains since 1970. In other late-breaking news and following a near sell-out for the Domes to Railroad Days, the Feather River Express, a rail buff group from the Bay Area who had reserved all of the seats in the Silver Splendor Vista Dome, has just re- leased 20 lounge seats for us to sell. The price for this ticket is $348 roundtrip and the local folks option is being offered at $198. These tickets are available for either Friday, Aug. 20, or Sunday, Aug. 22. Also there are still three Pullman sleeper rooms avail- able with premium dome seating. Remember, half of the pro- ceeds are being donated to the Western Pacific Railroad Museum. For more information on these rooms or to book on the Silver Splendor Lounge, call the reservations line for Trains & Travel Internation- al, Inc. at (800) 359-4870 or (775) 453-1004. 6oldclass Fairgrounds During these past hot, hot, hot weeks, the Graeagle Millpond has been looking particularly inviting.
