Our December show will be presented by ERA Program Chairman Andrew Grahl. Andrew’s slideshow will highlight the following diverse transit subjects:
- A Visit to the South: Slides of the newly opened Atlanta Streetcar and Charlotte’s Gold Line trolley as well as a ride on Loyola Avenue Line in New Orleans.
- Rails in Hawaii: A look at the light rail system under construction in Honolulu as well as several interesting rail museums and transportation subjects found on the islands.
- Norfolk Southern 2015 Steam Program: An exciting summer spent chasing the N&W 611 around Roanoke and the NKP 765 on the Southern Tier in New York. Views of several heritage units will also be featured.
- Everything is Bigger in Texas: Views of the expanding Dallas and Houston light rail systems taken in early August 2015. Views of all new lines, Denton County diesel light rail and Trinity Railway Express (including RDCs) will be shown.
Andrew will also cover the 100th Anniversary of the BMT celebration, the opening of 34th Street-Hudson Yards and other newsworthy items in the NYC area. Washington D.C., Boston, Los Angeles and the new Mascouche commuter line in Montreal will be visited as well. If time permits, original Kodachrome slides of subway and trolley subjects from the 1950s will be shown to conclude the presentation.
Come and enjoy the holiday season in New York and join us for our final show of 2015!
