Re: Vol 39 issue 3 Parlor cars

Received August 12th on the former New Haven Berkshire Line in Sheffield MA. Another great issue.  Enjoyed Jack Swanberg's article with photo on 1967 trip he made with his parents on the Berkshire.  Brought back some great memories.

Re: Canaan 2016

I went on a limited tour of the inside of the station on Saturday, July 15th. Lot of foot traffic going in & out. Just able to view the lobby area & part of the museum space. From what I could see, there's a lot more work to be done.
