Letter from the President
October 2016

The weather today was beautiful, but cold weather and rain are on the way. Enjoy any remaining good weather.

Saturday, October 15th, 5 of us enjoyed a beautiful drive to Horseshoe Curve and the Railroaders Museum in Altoona. We had perfect weather and got to see 4 trains pass through the curve a loaded coal train headed east, a tankers train headed east, and two stack trains (stacked cargo containers) headed west. At the museum, we saw a movie on the construction of the curve and many excellent displays of the railroad workings of Altoona. We also got to tour the newly-opened roundhouse with rolling stock under restoration. We ended the day with an excellent meal at the Cracker Barrel on Plank Road.
