Invitation to Northeast Rail Scenes

NYSME will be hosting rail historian Victor Zolinsky as he comes to speak about rail operations in the Northeast. Victor will be showing slides of the New Haven, Boston and Albany, New York Central and other lines from New England. All photos were taken by Victor who started shooting photos in his youth in the 1940s. He continued his photography while actually working on the railroad.
Victor would be hired on as a towerman on the New Haven and worked his way up to trainmaster, working at Grand Central Terminal. This is the third time that Victor has come to present. 
All are astonished by the wealth of information that Victor is! Vic's encyclopedic knowledge of railroads and their operations make it quite a learning experience for all those who are in attendance. 
This event will take place at 
Rutherford Ambulance Corp second floor meeting room 
at 44 Ames Ave. Rutherford, NJ (One mile from MetLife Stadium)
This Friday June 10, 2016 Doors open at 7:30pm
As always, the event is FREE
