Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the Amherst Railway Society will be on Tuesday, November 20, 2001, 8:00 P.M. at the Amherst Middle School.

I'm Proud of the New England Central Railroad

Our speaker will be Mr. Charles Moore, Atlantic Region Vice President of RailAmerica, the world's largest shortline and regional railroad operator, owning 39 railroads ( including New England Central) and 11,000 miles of track in 5 countries and 3 continents. Mr. Moore has had 35 years in the operating side of the railroad business. He is President of the Railway Association of Vermont, and he is on the Vermont Rail Council. He and his wife reside in St. Albans, VT.

Besides talking to us about RailAmerica and the New England Central, Mr. Moore will touch on related subjects such as Amtrak, Commuter Service, relationships with the cities we travel through, growth, etc.

Renewal Time is here for some of you! Please check the date on your mailing envelope. If it says 2001, then your membership is expiring now. Only current members will receive the free pass to our Railroad Hobby Show.

For those of you who have models, pictures, etc. to share, there is table space at the back of the auditorium for this purpose.

============= ============== =============

A number of you have gone on the Steamtown Safari over the years to Scranton, PA. The folks at Steamtown have decided for financial reasons to start their excursion operations on the 4th of July week-end next summer. We will not plan our trip in June, as other years, but will explore the possibilities of a summer or even a fall trip. Please speak to Doug Moore if you have suggestions or comments.


Most of you need no reminder about our show, and about how many willing hands it takes to pull it off. But for those of you who have been hanging back for various reasons, this year is your chance to participate in a really grand enterprise. If our show isn't the biggest in the country, it is very close to that. It's a great way to get to know fellow club-members, and on the day that you volunteer some time, your admission is free. For the less active, consider helping with show credentials Friday into the evening, and Sat. morning, both busy registration times.

I would like to help at the Big Railroad Hobby Show:
