2013 GNRHS Convention - Naperville, IL
The 2013 GNRHS Convention will be held at Naperville, Illinois from Saturday, July 27th to Wednesday, July 31st.
This year's convention will be held in the Chicago area, eastern terminus of famous Great Northern trains like the 'Empire Builder' and 'Western Star'. Our convention headquarters will be in Naperville, IL. You’ll have a chance to meet old friends, make a few new ones, and spend several days talking Great Northern. Great tours are planned to the Illinois Railway Museum, Chicago Historical Society, Museum of Science and Industry and other interesting locations. A tour of Electro Motive Diesel (EMD) is available for a limited number of participants, determined by lottery. We'll also have our customary presentations about numerous subjects on the Great Northern.
Our headquarters will be the Chicago Marriott Naperville Hotel. The Marriott was recently totally renovated to an almost new hotel. If you would like to stay with us at the Marriott, please call 1-800-514-4684 to reserve your room. The convention rate is $99 per night, for a limited number of rooms.
