Amherst Railway Society - meeting - October, 2015
Date: Tuesday, October 20, 2015
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: South Hadley Tower Theaters, South Hadley, MA
On May 9, 2015, the Amherst Railway Society sponsored a unique trip through the streets of Holyoke, Massachusetts, tracing 75 years of railroad history in the area.
The tour was led by Dick Joyce, a Holyoke native and historical expert on the railroads of Holyoke.
Plus, a film crew accompanied the tour capturing Dick’s narrative and the many significant sights along the way. The tour video has been edited into a 30-minute presentation that will be shown on October 20, 2015 at the Amherst Railway Society’s October monthly meeting.
To properly show this nostalgic, educational, fun video, the October meeting location has been changed to:
South Hadley Tower Theaters
19 College Street
South Hadley, MA 01075
