Conrail Slide Show Wednesday January 9, 2019.

Conrail Office Car Special at Boston in November 1987.

Tomorrow Wednesday January 9, 2019, at 730pm, I’ll be presenting a slide show on Conrail to the Amherst Railway Society in Palmer, Massachusetts.

Amherst Railway Society meetings are open to the public.

The program will feature some of my finest vintage slides; Kodachrome and otherwise.

Conrail NHSE at Chester, Massachusetts.

Westward Conrail MBSE ‘The Queen’ approaching the Pioneer Valley Railroad diamond in Westfield, Massachusetts—a scene much changed today.

Amherst Railway Society’s Clubhouse is located in the old Palmer Grange building on South Main Street near the intersection with Route 32, a stone’s throw from the old Tennyville Bridge over CSX’s former Conrail—Boston & Albany—mainline.
