“ The St. Lawrence and Syracuse Divisions of the New York Central Railroad” by Allen H. Hillborn&

Allen Hillborn, Trustee of the New York Central System Historical Society, has had an interesting and unique relationship with the railroad spanning 55 years. Having befriended dozens of train crews, maintenance, and management people, he was literally given the keys to the railroad. The St. Lawrence and Syracuse Divisions were favorite locations with lots of steam and diesel activity. He was privileged to witness many unusual train operations and promises plenty of humorous stories to accompany his photo presentation.

Please remember to check the date on your mailing label. If it says “2002”, your membership has expired, and you need to renew. Only current members will receive the pass for the show along with upcoming newsletters.


Please consider now whether you can volunteer at our great show.
I would like to help at the Big Railroad Hobby Show:
