You are invited!
And, Feel free to pass this on to others.
The Oldest Model Railroad Club in America
The New York Society of Model Engineers will be hosting a Presentation / Symposium covering Railroad Operations.

The Symposium will begin with a digital slide presentation on rail operations presented by noted rail historian Rich Taylor and retired New Jersey Transit  Trainmaster Jim Mardiguian.

This will be followed by an open discussion on railroad operations.
We are expecting at least five active and retired professional railroaders who will discuss real life rail operations with a historic leaning and a little bit of humor.

Questions from the audience are expected and welcomed.

This is planned to be a real learning experience on railroads and their operation.
