The Friends of the 261 are sending its entire fleet of Amtrak certified cars 
to Rock Island, IL for Train Festival 2011. To help with the cost of moving the 
fleet and crew to Chicago for the festival, the Friends are selling individual 
tickets to and from Chicago, with limited stops available at Winona and 

You will be riding in style as we move SEVEN LUXURY RAIL CARS 
to Chicago. Passengers will be able to roam from car-to-car, enjoying an 
entire PRIVATE TRAIN. Due to flooding out West, Amtrak is running 
short trains, allowing the Friends to move three more private cars than
 our normal maximum of 4 (totaling 7).  We will be offering food and 
beverage service along the way, complimentary with your ticket purchase.
This is one rare occasion you do not want to miss!  

Because this is a special move, stops are limited to Winona and Milwaukee. 
The train will depart MSP at 8am on July 19th, please arrive AT LEAST
 15 minutes early. It is scheduled to arrive in Chicago at approximately 
3:55pm. On July 26th, the train is scheduled to depart 2:10pm and arrive
