Noted railroad author Allan Roberts will show a wonderful Super-8 sound movie presentation at this month’s Division meeting. Those who have seen the quality of Allan’s work in the past know this show is not to be missed. So join us for a wonderful sound movie show! The subjects will be as follows:
- 1971-1973 — B&O ME-1 1925-6 Standard Steel MU cars and trailers in action on the Staten Island Rapid Transit (SIRT) main between St. George and Tottenville.
- August 1974 — Final operation days of the old DL&W MUs out of Hoboken, including the GE U-34CHs and col-sm-6-CNW F-7As in action as well as scenes from aboard the last MU run (#639) to Gladstone.
- 1981-1983 — Pennsylvania Railroad GG-1s 4835 and 4717 and their brethren on fantrips and special events including ceremonies and last runs out of Matawan.
At the September meeting, before the start of the program, we will have a short business session to discuss matters related to the N.Y. Division. If you have anything you wish to bring up, this is the time to do so.
