Invitation: C.N.J. RR Slide Show

Feel free to forward this invitation to your friends

The Oldest Model Railroad Club in America invites you.

The New York Society of Model Engineers will be hosting a Slide Show covering the Central Railroad of New Jersey's Lehigh and Susquehanna Division in Pennsylvania. The slide show will feature CNJ operations there from the early 60's to the end of CNJ operations in Pennsylvania. Also, the show will be enhanced with slides of Lehigh Valley operations after they took over the CNJ trackage.

The presentation will be given by noted rail photographer Rich Taylor.

Due to the strong response to this slide show it has been moved from NYSME HQ to larger location permitting even more people to attend. Non-NYSME members are welcome!
