Rail Readers Book Club, Sept. 21, 1 pm

Join us for a discussion of the short story, Growing Up at Tunnel 1 on the Great Northern Was a Wonderful Experience, on September 21 at 11:00 a.m., at the Rail Readers Book Club.

This family history was written by Jim McWhirter and tells the story of growing up next to a Montana railway tunnel during the 1940s. McWhirter’s father worked for the railroad and their experiences give this story a personal feel.

Copies of this work are available at the Railroad Museum.

The Rail Readers Book Club meets at the Las Cruces Railroad Museum on the third Wednesday of the month.

Admission to the Railroad Museum is free. The museum is located at 351 N. Mesilla Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For additional information, visit the website at: or call (575) 647-4480.
