Reims, France

Just north of downtown the tramway leaves the cobblestone streets and operates in the median of Cours Langlet, using 750v DC current supplied by the underground APS system.

Our first show of 2015 will be presented by legendary photographer Jack May. Jack will show a very interesting and diverse slide presentation on the following subjects:

  • Streetcars and Light Rail of North Africa (Tunisia and Algeria): Tunis, Constantine, Algiers, Oran.
  • Railways of Switzerland: Zurich, Basel, Bern, and many scenic mountain railways, interurban lines, and two museum operations.
  • And if time permits, Mulhouse, France tram-train; Bergen, Norway; and Spain.

Come enjoy the first presentation of 2015! The show will be excellent.

WE WILL BE MEETING IN A DIFFERENT ROOM THIS MONTH: Our meeting has been relocated for this month only to the spectacular Terrace Room on the first floor of the Roosevelt Hotel. Turn right as you reach the top of the East 45th Street stairs. A sign should be there to guide you. This is the same room where Jack May kicked off our 2014 meeting series at the Roosevelt. The Vanderbilt Suite where we usually meet is undergoing routine maintenance.
