Members are encouraged to contact Olev Taremae or an ARHS Board Member to present their programs or contacts of people who can present programs related to Anthracite Railroads, e.g., slides, films, videos, DVD’s, or digital programs, or visits to model railroads, as programs are continually needed.
Douglas Kramer will be sharing his slide taken in the 1970s featuring Horseshoe curve including a derailment and its cleanup.
Harry Owens, raised in on-line town Truckville, has spent decades researching the Lehigh Valley Railroad’s Bowman’s Creek Branch. His illuminating program about obscure branch which once connected Wilkes-Barre and the Waverly/Sayre area is fascinating. Come and learn about this little known line and operation.
Frank Tatnall returns with what promises to be an outstanding program covering the Lehigh Valley Railroad from the 1950’s to the 1970’s.
You will think of Friday the 13th as your lucky day when you see a presentation of the late Dick Samsel’s slides. Rich Jahn will narrate. Members enjoyed a show of Dick’s photography last year. This program covers slides not seen last year.
ARHS HISTORY AND MORE. Dale Woodland will be our presenter. He has uncovered a video of the first run of our F3 as the 56. It will be exciting to see this piece of ARHS history. We see the people involved at that time and what they looked like all those years ago. There will also be more.
FLAGS DIAMONDS AND STATUES ON VALENTINE’s DAY. What could be more romantic than watching Dave Augsburger’s program entitled Flags, Diamonds and Statues? Dave’s program will cover the Lehigh Valley Railroad (flags), the Reading Company (diamonds) and the Jersey Central Railroad (statues). You might want to let your sweetheart know in advance lest there be any misunderstanding that there will not be any actual flags, diamonds or statues on display or available for purchase at the meeting.
