The Las Vegas Steampunk Tea Society is going to be gathering on October 15, 2011 at 12:30 PM to ride the train in Boulder City, NV in full attire and persona. (We will not turn away any dieselpunks or people lacking attire/persona!)
We will meet at 12:30 PM to board the train for the 1 PM train ride. After the leisurely 45 minute train ride, we will return to Boulder City for the train museum, photographs, general walking the streets in our finery, taking in the antique/second hand stores and perhaps a late lunch/tea/dinner depending on the crowd.
Cost for the rides is $10 for adults, children are $5 and for the steam tots under the age of 3 it's absolutely free. This is absolutely a family friendly event! Money is paid when you arrive for the ride to Nevada Southern Railroad itself.
This is for socialization and for picture opportunity - besides by October we might not faint in the heat!
We currently will take RSVPs here or on meetup.com. You do not need to RSVP on both.
http://www.meetup.com/lvsteam/ is the link for the meetup.com group where we tend to do the most conversing, suggesting of ideas, and such.
Some helpful tips:
-All cars are covered, but some have open windows so dress appropriately for the weather. Rain (yeah right),sunshine, and wind are possible be sure your garb is suitable.
-Props/costumes - this is a family event and we will be in the general public so keep that in mind when planing your attire. More information on if our painted nerf guns will be allowed on the train or not will be available closer to the event. As of right now goggles/face masks/props will be allowed, but let's help out our friends at Nevada Southern Railroad and cooperate with any requests they might have.
-Any questions? Message me up on the Steampunk Empire & friend me and I'll be happy to help
For a lovely description of the ride http://museums.travelnevada.com/destination/nevada-state-railroad-museum-boulder-city.aspx cannot be beat.
The Museum itself has a website http://museums.nevadaculture.org//index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=409&Itemid=124 that has helpful information.
