As I sit here writing this, I am reflecting on the past, but setting my sights on the FUTURE! Feature Articles 3 We have accomplished so much, yet have so much more we can do. We took our Winery Train and cut the Bus ride down from around 30 minutes to around 7 minutes with the addition of the new stop a Springs, and now we are moving the stop even closer to Riegelsville. Chris Cotty had this crazy idea of an exploding mine, what a hit that has turned out to be. Each year we try to add something new/different. I can't wait to see what 2011 brings. And with the group of dedicated Volunteers we have, the Sky is the limit! However, for us to continue to grow, we cannot do it with out you, our Members. To those of you who have come out and helped in 2010, a big Thank You, we cannot do this without you! To those who I haven’t had the pleasure of working with yet, I look forward to! I hope to meet a lot of “new” faces this year. If you can give an hour or a day, it all helps, just come on down!

Units are obviously en-route back to the NYSW (according to George King) after being returned to service at New England Central's St. Albans, VT shops. The 4050 had sat with a blown generator for more than a year, while the other two units had seen intermittent service on the NECR until late summer.
