Ole Towne Festival celebrated under sunny skies with seasonable temperatures.

We had a good evening for the reemergence of Ole Towne Fest in Shappell Park on Thursday evening June 21. We hosted about 150 ticket-bearing visitors as reported by ticket agent Pete Blaess. The train operated from 5:30 until the last run at 8:45, which by the way was full. Glenn Terminelli and Pat Graham were our engineers for the event. Ron Luckock brought along a series of his always excellent photo posters for all to see. Member Volunteers were there to insure safe operations for the evening as the C&S ran without interruption. Many thanks go out to the other supporting staff not already mentioned: George Chipko, Bill Timman, Bill Marz, Paul Carpenito, David & Tim Hitzel, Carl Pierson and Phil Hosbach.

Lehigh and Hudson River Caboose #18

L&HR caboose #18 oruir to going into shop

We expect to unveil the restored Lehigh and Hudson River RR caboose # 18 this year. Work began on this vintage caboose in 2011 and was originally planned to be completed in 1 season. However once work began, the extent of how badly the wood had deteriorated became apparent. Unfortunately, most of the wood had to be replaced. Even as we speak, the caboose crew is working on the finishing touches of this project. So stay tuned, we expect to have more on the big reveal later this year!
