The Open House will run from 12 Noon thru 9 PM and will include giveaways, prize drawings and a first chance opportunity to purchase vehicle rail spots at a 25% discount before they go on sale to the general public on “Cyber Monday”, November 26th. Premier rail spots in all four price zones will be available for early purchase at the discounted price on November 15th.
