Amherst Railway Society - meeting - October, 2016
Date: Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: Amherst Railway Society, Palmer, MA
The Delaware & Hudson Railroad was a fan of Alco locomotives, at one time rostering over 200 of the iconic engines.
Switchers, four and six-axel freight haulers, and PAs - the D&H used them all.
Patrick Hildreth and his brother Tom captured the D&H Alcos on film, including the former Santa Fe PAs that pulled
the beautiful New York - Montreal Laurentian and Montreal Limited passenger trains.
On October 18, Patrick’s slide presentation will take us back to the D&H Alco era.
Patrick is a life-long rail fan, and has made two previous presentations to the Amherst Railway Society.
