Aside from the upcoming Museum Open Houses and events schedule for 2014, membership will be working on several maintenance and preservation items as well as commencing on a large, new, restoration project of an original New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad semaphore signal. The semaphore pole and base was moved to the station in the summer of 2013. The goal is to restore the semaphore to operating condition sometime in 2014. If you haven’t visited our museum in the past, we invite you to come to an open house or event in 2014 and experience our museum for the first time. If you’ve visited in the past, make plans to visit us again and see our new displays, exhibits and events. - Ed Kaminski Available Now!! - Maywood & NYS&W in New Jersey Books!
