I encourage everyone to attend this event. It will be a fun and educational day for everyone. Dave Ibata and I will be in the General room all day answering questions about the locomotive and The Great Locomotive Chase. If you have never visited the Kennesaw Depot or been through the pedestrian tunnel, please visit them also. The Wilbur Kurtz paintings in the tunnel give a pictorial history in great detail of the chase and the depot has a wonderful display of Kennesaw and railroad history.
