NWI Chapter Weather Issues

With Zoom meetings at our disposal, winter cancellations won’t have to be a problem anymore. We can go to Zoom should foul weather threaten the driving conditions. But you must still inform me if you wish to participate in the Zoom. If I have you registered for our Zoom broadcasts already, you can relax and look for your invite via email.

NWI 2023 Dues Renewal Period

The NWI Chapter 2023 dues renewal drive is on. The chapter dues will remain at $20.00. National Railway Historical Society dues remain at $50. You must handle the NRHS dues portion with them. North Western Limited newsletter subscriptions will remain at $20.00 as well.

You may use the renewal form to inform us of your membership in another NRHS Chapter. By doing so, you are considered a NRHS member in the NWI Chapter as well and can participate in NWI Chapter business. If you have already renewed, thank you for your support.

You can send your renewals to the Chapter P.O. Box: NWI Chapter - Dues - P.O. Box 5632, Rockford, IL. 61125-5632.

Or you may send them directly to: NWI Treasurer Lloyd Rinehart, 522 Bradshaw Street, Dixon, IL., 61021-1639.
