The second half of the show will be a 35mm slide presentation from the NYRRE’s Allan Roberts. Allan is a noted author of several railroad books and will present a slideshow called Keystone Memories. The following Pennsylvania Railroad subjects will be included:

This show will cover many topics from two famous rail historians. Please come and join us as this is a show not to be missed.
Before the start of the program we will have a short business session to discuss matters related to the NY Division. If you have anything you wish to bring up, this is the time to do so.
