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.

2017 VERMONT STEAM CAR TOUR
P.O. BOX 55
WOODSTOCK, VERMONT 05091
Dear Steam Car Enthusiast,
We are pleased to announce the upcoming 2017 Vermont Steam Car Tour starting on Sunday, August 6th and ending Friday, August 11th to be held in Quechee, Vermont, seven miles east of Woodstock, home of the Bourdon family. This area is no stranger to steam and other antique car tours. The first organized steam car tour was headquartered in Woodstock in 1962 (55 years ago) and the last in Quechee in 2000 with 49 cars registered.
The Vermont landscape is clearly rural – an ideal and proven location for a steam car tour. Its relatively low-traveled country roads, historic villages, rolling and hilly terrain, and friendly people, make for an enjoyable event. We hope you will make every attempt to join us.
The Headquarters for the Tour will at two locations in Quechee, The Quechee Inn and the The Quality Inn, approximately 1 mile apart. The Tour Committee has made arrangements with both inns to accommodate our group with our steam cars and parking for trailers. Given the attractiveness of the area, it is anticipated that attendance again will be strong.
There will be five days planned tours, starting on Monday and ending on Friday. The tour routes will be varied lengths ranging from 70 to 120 miles, with arranged stops at various points of interest. For owners of smaller cars, not interested in traveling longer distances, we intend to offer an option for shorter routes on some of the days. Additionally, we have made arrangements with the historic Quechee Inn for both opening and closing banquets. Information for accommodations are:
The Quechee Inn at Marshland Farms
PH: 802-295 3133
The Quality Inn
PH: 802 295 6077
Several prospective attendees already have made reservations at the inns. If you plan on attending, we would encourage you to make your reservations sooner than later. When making reservations, please note that you are a part of the Vermont Steam Car Tour so that you can receive the discounted room rate for the dates of the Tour.
At this point, we are interested in obtaining a preliminary count on those interested in attending so that we can begin planning for the event in more detail. It would be greatly appreciated, if you could give your Tour Committee an indication of your intent on attending the tour, including if you plan on bringing a steam car. If you are unsure about attending, but would like to remain on our mailing list, please let us know. To confirm your interest contact Don Bourdon or Kathryn May on or before May 30th at one of the addresses listed below. In early June, your Committee will be forwarding more information about the Tour, including registration materials to persons on our mailing list.
