December 4th Meeting Presentation

Dear Members,

I have secure permission from Bob Thamsen to record his Presentation on “Local Railroading” at the December 4th meeting. Bob was a former railroader and has worked on the multiple railroads from the 1960’s up to the early 2000’s. His presentation will discuss railroading in the Hudson Valley area including Conrail and CSX.

I will post a notification once the video that is being taken by Steve Porter (Thanks Steve) is processed and I have both edited and posted it.

On another note I really appreciate all of your patience in transitioning this blog. If any of you still need help please contact me directly at Most of the inquiries have been about following links. The posts that you get such as this are just notifications. I thought I had pit the main link in all of them but perhaps that was not the case. In any event the only link you should be following is to This is not the old website, this is the NEW Newsletter blog. There is no username required only a password. You password is 803. This was sent to all of you when you signed up. It was in the verification e-mail so perhaps you missed it but again it is 803. Please write it down and put it in  one of your favorite O&W books as a bookmark for safe keeping. It is only needed for certain content! Many of the new items I recently posted required NO Password.

Note: Many of these display issues can be resolved using a browser like Chrome or Mozilla, or Opera in place of Internet Explorer. IE is notorious for web related issues.
