The Speeders Are Coming!

Speeder presale tickets available July 6

The 6th Annual WI&M Railway HPG History Days are slated for July 11 and 12. With keen competition for speeder car rides, presale tickets will again be available this year, guaranteeing rides at specific times. The presale tickets, on sale at US Bank (Potlatch branch) starting July 6, will be $15 for adults and $10 for age 12 and under.
Tickets purchased at the depot on the day of the event will run $10 for adults, and $5 for age 12 and under. Those tickets will be on a first come first served basis.
This year’s ride options include trips from Potlatch to Princeton, and from Potlatch to Kennedy Ford, with speeders starting the rides at 9 am. A silent auction will be conducted on July 11 for longer excursion rides to either Marshall WA or Moscow.
In addition to the speeder rides, there will be bluegrass and fiddle music on the newly painted Bennett boxcar stage from 11 am to 6 pm. There will also be a food court featuring Tyler Renz’s barbecue lunches and drink sales by the Boy Scouts. The Extra Fare Barbecue by Tyler Renz will be Saturday evening with tickets priced at $10.00 for adults and $6 for 12 and under. The barbecue tickets can be purchased ahead of time at US Bank or at the depot.
Inside the depot freight room, visitors can view the historical pictures and displays provided by the Potlatch Historical Society and the Latah County Historical Society, and railroad themed products will be for sale at the Company Store.
Plan to attend the full day of family activities!
