The USA Western Region Coordinators are coordinating our first event (of many planned).

This will be a drive / train tour / overnight stay / wine tasting event in Northern Arizona.

All Jensen enthusiasts in the Western USA are invited to participate. The event is intended to provide maximum flexibility - you can attend as much or as little of the event as able. All models are encouraged to join us.

Here is the overall agenda:

Jensen Verde Valley Railroad Drive

Oct 27 (Wed) - 9am to 11am Drive from Prescott (location to be determined) to Verde Valley Railroad (300 N. Broadway, Clarkdale AZ 86324). Our trip will take us over Mingus Mountain, through Jerome, and into Clarkdale.

Oct 28 (Thurs) Wine tasting mid-day. No structured plans. Some members will overnight at the Iron Horse Inn, and others will return to Prescott, AZ.

Oct 29 (Fri) ~0900 - Car Caravan to Phoenix, AZ, continuing to Tucson.


Additional Notes:

Every train is selling out. So, reservations for the Verde Valley Tour on the 27th of October should be made sooner rather than later.

Once all parties have made their train reservations, we will to call to make sure we sit together. Please let us know when your reservation have been made.



We look forward to a fun tour, and meeting some of the Western Jensens. Please post up here, if you are interested in participating. Additional details on the event will be available by emailing:
