The Chapter ran a pair of day excursions from St. Louis to Ste. Genevieve on the first weekend of November, 2003. While the Saturday weather was typical autumn overcast, the Sunday weather was sunshine and 80 degrees. We were joined on board by a welcoming committee from Ste. Genevieve who provided information and answered questions about the town prior to arrival. The train was met with a band and other local, period dignitaries including the King and Queen! Passengers had several hours to explore the town's historical buildings and gift shops before the train whisked them back to an early evening arrival in St. Louis.
