Southeastern Typewriter Meet-Up & Type-In
February 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
For only the second time, typewriter enthusiasts from around the country will hold an annual meet-up event at the Southeastern Railway Museum!
Typewriter lovers and the general public are welcome! The event will be co-hosted by members of the Antique Typewriter Club. Typing will be indoors and climate-controlled, out of the cold.
We’ll have vintage machines for visitors to use, or you can bring your own typewriter! Paper will be supplied. It’s the perfect time to type up your Valentine’s Day cards, letters, or just have fun. Or, for the rail enthusiast, type your own train orders or sleeper reservations!
For those who grew up on a typewriter – how fast can you type? For the millennials who have never touched a typewriter – trust us, it is so awesome. Try typing some snail mail for a change!
Have an old manual typewriter that needs a tune up? Need to learn how to maintain your typewriter? Looking to buy, sell, or trade? Typewriter enthusiasts and collectors will be on hand to help you out. Machines through the decades will be on display, sort of like a mini traveling typewriter museum!
All typing is included in admission. Train rides sold separately.
If you agree that typewriters are following vinyl records out of the grave, we hope to see you there!
