Re: Shoreliner vol. 39, iss 4 and NHRHTA Renewals

Received Volume 39 Issue 4 with paperwork on the former New Haven Berkshire Line in Sheffield, Mass on January 11th.  My renewal will be going out to Mr Pedersen in Friday's mail along with a donation to The 300 Fund to restore EF-4 #300.

Re: Canaan Fan Trip?

I rode with my mother in one of those New Haven coaches.  I was 13 years old & have fond & enjoyable memories of the ride.  We went down to Maltby's siding near Falls Village, did a runaround & came back to Canaan.  Very few empty seats, if there were any.

Re: Comet on the Berkshire

Thanks for posting, Rick.  Nice photo. In the background is the Canfield Hotel when it still had a front porch.

Re: Canaan Fan Trip?

Thanks Tom for that information.  I must have missed seeing the two RDC cars on the line during that time period.

Re: Canaan Fan Trip?

Saw this photo in a magazine (can't remember the name of it) that gets distributed in the tri state area 4 times per year.  Has a lot of old pictures of Canaan & other towns.  This posted photo is much better than the magazine had (theirs was cropped down & poorer quality).   I'm not sure if this wa...

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.
