    My Trip to Waterloo Iowa

    Well Gang, I took Friday off of work and did a road trip to Waterloo Ia. to tour the Engine Works plant and Engine Museum. I highly recommend that if you are in the area to schedule tours at both places. The both tours lasted 1.5 hours, we did the plant tour at 9:30 am and the museum tour at 5:30 pm. In the mean time I know a friend that works at the plant and we got to have very good lunch visit between the tours. We want with another Corvette couple to get the Vettes out there for the 200 mile trip. The pics of the plant are limited but, I have got some of the museum to share. All in all we had a great day.

    I corrected it for you. Big mistake if you don't take the time. The also have a Cabs plant tour in Waterloo I have on my list of future tours. Jus make sure you register for the tour. You cannot just show up and get a plant tour. The museum does not need a tour guide, but highly recommended. The tour guides are the nicest people, they are what make these tours Great!

    Six years ago my daughter was working for a JD dealership in Crookston, MN. She called me and said she had a seat for me on the dealership's customer tour to the JD plants. We traveled by bus to the Quad Cities the first day. The next day we toured the combine production facility, Parts Depot and a museum. The next day we went to the engine plant and then on to the tractor plant. It was fascinating to see everything being built. We even saw a Gold Key customer follow his tractor through the production process and then got to be the first one to start it up at the end of the assembly line and drive it to the final inspection station. Would do this tour again in a heartbeat.
