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.
To join any of our virtual membership meetings, please ensure that you have Zoom installed. If you have never been part of a Zoom meeting or webinar, you should download the "Zoom Client for Meetings" app ahead of time.
Olev Taremae’s 2020 White River Publications book covered the main lines and branch line of the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton area from the beginning to the end of Conrail. Additionally, it covered the heritage railroads that preceded Conrail and the transition to Norfolk South. The book included about 190 photographs illustrating the text. There was not sufficient room in the book for all of the pictures, I would have liked to have seen in the book.
This program presents some of the images which were not in the book.
Jim Rowland’s program will cover the Cement Belt region of the Lehigh Valley. The program will include material from Jim’s 13-part exploration of the cement industry and the railroads that served the plants. These 13 articles were contained in Lehigh Lines, the publication of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of the National Railroad Historical Society. Railroads covered included the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western, Erie-Lackawanna, Lehigh & New England, Conrail, Norfolk Southern and Northampton & Bath, Lehigh Valley, Ironton RR, and the Central Railroad of New Jersey.
