Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the Amherst Railway Society will be at 7:30 pm, Tuesday, October 21, 2014, at the Amherst Regional Middle School Auditorium.


by Pat Hildreth

Amtrak was but a year and a half old. In order to check out what changes had been wrought Pat Hildreth, budding local railfan photographer, undertook a day pilgrimage to the storied electric/diesel enterchange at New Haven on November third of that bygone year. Pat will show the results of shooting two full rolls of slides encompassing every aspect of what one would see of rail operations at the New Haven station. You will see a station of a very different aspect than today, far more open and photo friendly, plus a full slate of locomotives long since gone to scrap, foremost of which has to be the great "GG1"in several color schemes of the day.Many others will be seen; all to the delight of any railfan.
