Feature Articles 4 The New York Susquehanna & Western Passaic Industrial Branch Brian Cronk Departments 2 3 Hi All, It’s 2016 and I’m sitting here looking at 30 inches of SNOW! Boy am I looking forward to warm weather, the smell of spring and being able to see the rails again! We have some new and exciting things in the works that will happen this year. That along with the “normal” excursions we run, will make for an interesting year. Now is the time to come out and help us get ready for the new Season. 2014 marked the first time we ran a Polar Train on a Friday. This was necessary because of demand for tickets. 2015 was no different except we added another Friday that sold out in 10 minutes! The way our tickets sell we are doing better than Rock Stars! As it looks we could add a bunch more days and still sell out! A special Thank You goes out to all who worked to make our Polar and the whole Year the success it was. As always there are a ton of things to do and so little time to do them. Your help will make it happen. Come out and give an hour or a day, it all helps. Upcoming work in 2016. Working on the Coaches Getting the M1 ready for service. Getting the 501 ready for service. Brush cutting along the ROW Work in the Station Area Looking to continue extending our tracks further South, we are not far from River Road crossing in Riegelsville. Our next push should get us there! Come on out to help make 2016 a Great Year for our Society! As always, my “door” is always open to you, our members.
