Subject: Newark Penn Solari Board

To all:

NJ TRANSIT is replacing the Solari big board at Newark Penn Station and will be disposing of the existing flap style board that is currently in place (although obviously not original to the station).  While the unit cannot be removed in one piece, if any parties would like to receive any of the station name flaps for preservation or display we will be happy to work with you to arrange for such disposition of pieces of the old board.  Please note, however, NJ TRANSIT is unable to provide transport of these items.  If you have any interest please let me know and I will arrange for you to meet with someone from our information technology staff.  Also – if you know of other organizations that might wish to receive this notification, feel free to pass this message along.  Dara

Note:  This Solari board is a split-flap display used to show train arrivals and departures.  It is named after the manufacturer, Solari di Udine from Udine, Italy.
