Meeting Announcement

Welcome to the 2007 - 2008 season of the Amherst Railway Society. The first meeting will be Tuesday, September 18, 2007, 8:00 p.m. at the Amherst Middle School.

Norfolk and Western Steam
by Bob McGloughlin

Mr. McGloughlin will be presenting a show of slides and video footage of steam trips of Norfolk and Western RR locomotives 4-8-4 #611 and 2-6-6-4 #1218. He lives in Dedham, MA and was in Ireland when this was written.

At our June 19 business meeting, we elected the following people: Sudro Brown, President; Ira Laby, Vice-President; Janet Moore, Secretary; and Alan Rice, Peter Veneman and Joe Albano, Jr. Directors At Large.

If you received an orange slip in your envelope, you are technically no longer a member. You must renew to continue to receive newsletters and a show pass to the 2008 Railroad Hobby Show.

It is with sadness that we announce the death of Maurice Bates, a founding member of our society. Maurice, 95, died in early August, and was originally a member of the Mechanical Engineering faculty at UMass.

With this newsletter, you will find a flyer for the P&W Circle Tour sponsored by the MBRRE. ARS members are being offered the MBRRE member price.

Please be sure to pay the member price, and indicate you are a Railway Society member.
