URHS Albany Trip

Hello everyone,

As noted in our meeting on Wednesday October 12th, the URHS in conjunction with Boonton Station 1904 will be running a trip on November 5th and 6th from NY Penn Station to Albany-Rensselaer, NY and return. Departure from NY Penn Station will be at 11:20 am with refreshments and appetizers being served to Albany-Rensselaer, NY. We will arrive at Albany-Rensselaer, NY at 1:50 pm then disembark and proceed via shuttle bus to the CV Evens Brewery Pump Station Restaurant for a buffet lunch. We will then Board the bus again at 3:30 and travel back to the Albany-Rensselaer Amtrak station for a 4:05 p.m. departure arriving at NY Penn at approximately 6:45 p.m. On the ride back, coffee and desserts will be offered. For those of you interested, the train numbers are 233 to Albany-Rensselaer and 244 to NYP

Tickets prices are dependent on the car you would like to ride and are limited in seating.

· NYC 43 $175.00

· NYC Hickory Creek $275.00
Again, this includes food and drinks on the train, shuttle bus in Albany-Rensselaer to and from the restaurant and buffet lunch in Albany. I have attached a link below to purchase tickets.

Thank you again for your continuing support and all proceeds go to the URHS of NJ, a 501(c)3, to help maintain the yard where NYC 43 and NYC Hickory Creek reside.
