Our March show will be presented by Jeff Erlitz. Using a combination of archival sources, most notably the Robert M. Emery Long Island Rail Road Collection at Stony Brook University’s Special Collections and University Archives, Jeff will take us on a tour from one end of Long Island to the other. We will see a variety of images from the late 1800s to the mid-1960s, all in glorious black and white. And we will get to see most, if not all, of the railroad’s branches. Steam, electric and diesel-powered trains will all be represented. Please join us for a wonderful presentation!
