Hi folks,

Just got a pallet-full of calendars dropped in my garage (the Mustang wasn't there!). Same as last year...and we sold out. So, "be the first on your block" to get your NYNH&H calendar. Same price as last year!

Order form here: http://nhrhta.org/pdf/2018calendar.pdf

Look forward to your order and thanks,

Dave

Just sent in my order. Can't wait!!

When my kids were little, my wife insisted that I put my NHRHTA calendar under the Christmas tree as a gift from Santa! No joke!

Our "baby" turns 28 this year, I will be ripping open that 2018 calendar in July!

Mr. Franzosa. The NHRHTA calendar is on my letter to Santa every year, and is under the Christmas tree each year even though my youngest turned 30 this year. Shortly after Mr. Clinton posted this thread, I printed out the order form, and my check was in the mail the morning of the 6th. It will again be wrapped and under the Christmas tree in 2018, but I know the three people who wrap the presents (id, ego and super ego, aka: me, myself and I) and if I bribe them, they might let me sneak a peak. Like all of the calendars, I am looking forward to the 2018 NHRHTA calendar. Thanks Mr. Clinton for posting the order form link on the Forum.

Calendar arrived today, awesome job as usual! 👍

Question about the November photo. It's a railfan trip in a pair of Budd RDCs and it's dated October 20, 1955 but there's a bit of snow on the ground, was there an early winter storm? Would anyone know?

Mr. Joe. Looking up a number of newspaper chronicles for Southern New England I don't think so. I haven't received my calendar yet, so I don't know the exact location. However, starting October 14th there was a four day storm that hit Southern New England causing a second round of bad flooding on all the rivers in Connecticut and most in Massachusetts and Rhodes Island. The average rainfall for the four days was 12" - 14," with bridges belonging to the New Haven Railroad damaged on the Naugatuck River, the Norwalk River, and the Saugatuck River that had been put back in operation following the August flooding. All the articles afterwards talked about the clean-up and recovery efforts, and aid being provided. One press report on October 20th said that 90% of the roads were "washed out to some degree." No reports of any snowfall were mixed in with the flood coverage up to October 20th. That doesn't mean it didn't snow, but the very recent flood and its impact was probably more important to record in the daily accounts accessible digitally. Bet this muddied up the scene some. Can't wait to see where the RDC's were when the picture was taken.

Hi Richard,

The text says the RDCs were crossing the Blackstone River at Albion, RI with a fan trip from Providence to Peterboro NH. No signs of flooding in this picture, just snow covered grounds, buildings and the ROW.

Checking the weather records for Boston for the month of October 1955, it is very unlikely there was any measurable snow on the ground in southern New England that month. The coolest days had highs in the mid-50s, 3-4 days before the 20th. High temperature in Boston was 66 on the 20th.

Having measurable snow on the ground that early in the season would be a very unusual event.
