Railfans of Indianapolis welcome back Mike Blaszak
« on: April 07, 2010, 09:11:50 AM »
Chicago railfan supreme Mike Blaszak makes a return visit to the Railfans of Indianapolis meeting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 2560 Villa Ave. Blaszak, a Chicago-area attorney and well-known railroad authority and railfan will present a program on the Rock Island. Mike was born into a railroad family (PRR) in 1953. After graduating from Northwestern University and the University of Chicago Law School, he realized a lifetime ambition when he joined The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway in 1976, working in the Law Department and then serving as Director-Administration of the railway. Thereafter Mike joined TTX Company as Assistant General Counsel and represented many major railroads and short lines in private practice. Currently he is regional counsel at AECOM in Chicago. Mike has written widely on railroad issues for many publications. He recently authored the main article on grain shipping by the railroads in Trains magazine.

We start to gather at 7 p.m. to shoot the bull and swap stories. The meeting starts at 7:30 with a short business/news session and then the main program. Visitors are always welcome. Anyone who needs directions to the church, feel free to send me a message.
