Tour of SWSCC

It has been a long time since we toured SWSCC so take this opportunity to visit Longview. The items on Ca wire and a substitute for Zircon should be particularly interesting. In addition requests we received at the National T&O Conference in December asked for a review some of the previous work related to operations and steel cleanliness. We have included two items related to this in the program.


The hotel we have been recommended to use is Holiday Inn Express and Suites, 300 Tuttle Circle, Longview, TX 903 663 6464, mention ARI (American Railway Institute) when you make your reservation, I understand that the room rate will be around $90.
