at the Bickford Theater of the Morris Museum

6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ 07960

This month we will recognize the 20th Anniversary of the closing of the
massive Bethlehem Steel plant in that Eastern Pennsylvania town that meant
so much to the railroad scene for more than a Century. Long-time member and
film collector Mitch Dakelman will bring an original print of the film
STEEL: MAN'S SERVANT. Produced by US Steel in 1938, Dakelman calls it "the
best film made" about the steel business, and it's in Technicolor. His
collection includes other films produced by USS and Bethlehem that he'll
share with us on this special night of remembrance for the area's largest
rail customer.

Admission is free, open to the public. All are welcome. The meeting will
begin at 7:15 p.m. The programs usually begin about 8:00 p.m. Light
refreshments are often available. We will have a selection of books, videos
and memorabilia for sale before the meeting. Visit us at or the web: TRISTATERAIL.ORG
