Hello All -

This is a heads up for those planning to join us for the 2011
segment of the annual bus tour along various portions of the former
Central New England Railway. The 2011 tour will be on Sunday
April 3rd (rain or shine). CAUTION this is the weekend when the
clocks change to Daylight Savings Time. Don't be late.

We will depart from the parking lot in Simsbury, CT. This was one
of the spots where we stopped in 2010. The 2011 tour will cover
the CNE between Simsbury and Norfolk, CT. This section covers
some well known wreck sites and also Satan's Kingdom and Winsted.

The exact routing is subject to change if we run into any last minute
problems or find a new way to get the buses into a small space. Due
to the narrow roads and lack of suitable parking in much of the general
area of our tour, some locations can only be shown from the bus
or in photographs. We will show you as much as we possibly can.

As usual, everybody will get a copy of the 2011 CNE Tour guide
book. We have a lot of ground to cover so we will have coffee and
buses will roll at 9:00.

The cost of this year's tour will again be $50.00 per person and
payment should be made out to: Joseph Mato CNE 2011
Be sure to include your E-Mail address so we can contact you if we
need to. If you don't have E-Mail then include your phone number.

Send it to:
JOE MATO-CNE 2011
62 WOOD ROAD
REDDING, CT. 06896

Any money that is left after expenses will be used as "seed money"
for next years trip.

As we did last year, we have two buses with 55 seats each. In past
years we sold all seats and had a waiting list so don't wait too long to
send in your reservation. Please note that any request for refunds
must be received thirty (30) or more days in advance of
the tour date. If you can find a replacement to take your bus seat,
that's OK just let us know who it is. We have to know who to let
onto the bus when the tour starts. If you can't find a replacement
then we may have somebody on the waiting list to suggest but we
can't refund money that has already been spent on tour expenses.
