Gary Pancavage, now retired from Amtrak overseeing the Acela fleet’s mechanical aspects, will present a wide ranging program including photos from Amtrak’s NY Division, Torresdale, PA and Central NJ, and occasionally in the Philadelphia area. In addition, you will see his railfan images of SEPTA, Conrail, and Chessie System/CSX from the late 1970’s through the mid 2000’s.
An added bonus is a selection of scanned slides taken by the late Walter Schopp on the Reading’s West Trenton Line in the 1960’s and 70’s between Philadelphia and Manville-Bound Brook.
Revisit the CNJ from a commuter’s perspective. Dan McFadden rode the CNJ for 19 years. When he started, the CNJ featured old equipment where you could find open windows and Dutch Doors. The Blue Comet Observation car was running on one train. As time went by, Dan rode and photographed vintage equipment, transitional and up-to-date equipment.
Dan will also present some coverage of the CNJ’s High Bridge Branch.
