Yes, Saturday, the 16th.  That might work better if I promote it more on the forum.

The next Downtown Walking Tour is Saturday, October 14th at 9:00 AM.  The title of the tour is "Making Tracks - Fort Worth's Railroad History".  We meet at an appropriate location, the Texas & Pacific Railway Terminal on Lancaster.

The walking tour is coming up on Saturday at 9 AM, if any of you are interested in attending.  It is an educational experience.

You're welcome, Hipolyte.  However, I will admit that the railroad tour was not within my field of expertise.

Unfortunately, I still regret not mentioning the removed T&P platforms when we were in the tunnel behind the building.

 

The tour was fun- thanks, John!

The next Downtown Wlaking Tour is this Saturday. The November tour always features John F. Kennedy and his last day in Fort Worth.

It starts at 9 AM and we meet at the Texas & Pacific Lofts office at the Texas & Pacific Railway Terminal at 221 W. Lancaster Avenue.

 

The December tour is always special.  We do the history of the downtown churches.  We are talking about trying to gain access to two of the church buildings.

 

We are thinking about doing a downtown hotel tour for January.

The December Downtown Walking Tour is this Saturday, starting at 9:00 AM at the Texas & Pacific Lofts.  The theme for December's tour is "Churches".  The tour leaders are making arrangements for us to go inside at least one of the downtown churches.
