Feature Articles 4 The New York Susquehanna & Western Passaic Industrial Branch Brian Cronk Departments 2 3 Hi All, The Season is finished and now it’s time to sit back and reflect on what was accomplished in 2016 and look forward to an even better 2017! 2016 marked the first “Passenger” rides out of Milford. Member Don Chaudruc rebuilt a GE 45 tonner and pulled Caboose rides during the Milford Alive event. Prior to the runs he had about 1.5 mils of track rebuilt so the trains could run. His goal is to add to that in 2017. To say it was a hit with the people of Milford is an understatement. Hopefully we can make a bigger statement this year. The Polar format was changed slightly to help the Trains run on time. The changes were a success and well received by our riders. It’s things like this that keep our riders coming back year after year. Good things are happening! 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 2017. 142 Winter Work. Winter work on the Coaches Work on the M1. Brush/tree cutting along the ROW Work in the Station Area Come on out to help make 2017 another Great Year for our Society! There are a few new things coming in 2017, but more on that in a future issue! As always, my “door” is always open to you, our members.
