(Continued from page 15) FINALLY Well, for the first time in a few columns there are no retirements to report on (though that may change next year). In short, traffic is steady if not up, and the railroad is humming right along and doing what it was established to do: provide customer service the best it can and as safely as possible. I realize this column has a bias to the Southern Division, but I am always looking for Northern Division news and info as well. If any readers can provide me with such info, please do so. My email is: blet601@gmail.com. Remember, this is YOUR NYSW THS since it’s YOUR dues that allow us to publish this magazine and the annual calendar. We are only as good as the members who support us, so please get involved and help keep this group to preserve and record the history of the NYS&W, whose final chapter is far from being written. Until next time… Photos by Ralph Bonanno unless otherwise noted. 17 Photos page 16.
