Work Weekends

Work "Weekends" are the second Saturday of the month.

Don't be surprised if the work starts on Friday and spills over to Sunday.

Various projects are scheduled to be worked on throughout the year. See some the projects at our Shopblog and on our Projects page. There is always something being worked on at the Midwest Central Railroad.
  • Work weekend dates with "strikethrough" are: 1) unlikely (marked "COVID-19") due to the coronavirus pandemic; 2) restricted (marked "Restricted") due to the coronavirus pandemic, or 3) unlikely due to the Old Threshers Reunion (marked "OTR") ending a week earlier. If listed as "Restricted" contact a Project Lead or member of the board of directors for details. 
  • "(MHR)" = date coincides with Midwest Haunted Rails operations.
  • "(NPE)" = date coincides with North Pole Express operations.

Midwest Central Railroad's Board of Directors' meetings are usually work weekend Friday evenings.
