2018 Eastern Steam Car Tour
Return to Auburn Heights
Mark Your Calendars & Reserve Your Hotel Rooms Now
for the Return to Auburn Heights Steam Car Tour in 2018!
The Marshall Steam Museum and Friends of Auburn Heights Preserve (FAHP) are proud to host next year's Eastern Steam Car Tour. Tour Chairman Tom Marshall and the Tour Committee are already busy making plans for an extraordinary itinerary.
Dates: July 8-13, 2018
Host hotel: Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott (Kennett Square, PA), with trailer parking at the hotel & complimentary breakfast
We have arranged a special rate of $115/night (plus tax). Below is the reservation link to make online reservations or feel free to call the hotel at (610) 444-8995 and identify yourself as a participant in the "Steam Car Tour" to receive the special rate.
Important note: The link below is set up to allow reservations at the $115/night rate July 7-14, so if you are planning a typical tour stay from Sunday to Saturday (July 8-14), please be sure to adjust the arrival date accordingly rather than accept the default. If you intend to stay later, don't hesitate to call the hotel, and they will be happy to extend the rate for another night's stay.

Please reserve your room now! There is no charge to make the reservation, and you may cancel without penalty as long as you do so 48 hours before your arrival date.
So even if you aren't certain you'll attend, book now (especially if you have particular room requirements). Why? The hotel has reserved a block of rooms at the special Steam Tour rate and will release more as demand warrants. But if everyone waits until next May or June and another group swoops in to reserve rooms (for a wedding or other event), the hotel may not be able to accommodate you.
We hope you will plan to join us next summer! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email or call 302-239-2385.

22nd April 2018
Every year Drive It Day is purposefully held on the Sunday nearest to 23 April. Why? Because it commemorates the 64 cars that left London on the first day of the Thousand Mile Trial on 23 April 1900. The Royal Automobile Club Thousand Mile Trial started in London and passed through Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester - travelled through Scotland - then passed back through more English locations until they were back in London again. The tour lasted until May 12th and 46 out of approximately 65 starting cars made it to the finish line.
