Dec 16, 2022 7:30 PMOn-line ProgramA Very Special Christmas - Train StoriesThomas the tank engine, his friend Montague (aka Duck), and other friends have agreed to be conductors for our December meeting, called Train Stories: A Gift to Ourselves. They invite volunteers, about a dozen of you, to tell a short 3- to 5-minute story about your connection to railroads. You can reminisce about your introduction to railroading, a story about the Dover Harbor, a favorite rail station, a rail journey to remember, or more. These stories are to relate our collective experiences and shared passion for railroading. It’s the perfect time to reconnect on a personal level with each other and with railroading in an evening of holiday fun. If you have a story to tell, or a bit of railroad history to share, let our editor know at Or just tune in December 16, 7:30 for a wonderful evening of train stories.Free and open to the public.Register on-line now.
