Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the Amherst Railway Society will be 8 pm EDT Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at the Amherst Regional Middle School Auditorium.

"Searching for Steam in China"
by Jim Schweitzer

The presentation will be slides of steam that Jim Schweitzer shot in the winters of 2002 and 2004 while traveling through China in search of the last great bastions of steam in the world. Many locations will be shown including along the JiTong Railway, Chengde Steelworks, Tongliao, and the Datong Railway. Most notably, both sides of the famous Jingpeng Pass will be included. Many classes of Chinese steam will be shown.

Jim Schweitzer has been a rail fan ever since a fateful walk to the bakery with his grandfather when he was a child. A Long Island Rail Road freight roared by and he was hooked for life. He has rail fanned all of the Lower 48 states and a large portion of Canada.
