Re: RDC's on Berkshire line mid 1960s'

Re: RDC's on Berkshire line mid 1960s'

Last I knew, #42 RDC Budd Car was at RMNE in Thomaston CT.  Took a ride in it on their operative rail line over two years ago.  I saw it earlier this year in their rail yard & it was still in great shape.

Re: Old TV news story RE New Haven

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.
