STEAMTOWN WEEKEND NOTE: There will be a night photo session at Steamtown National Historic Site on Sunday evening, May 24, 1998, at 8:00 p.m. In honor of Memorial Day weekend, the theme will be Railroads and the Military. Scenes will include BLW 0-6-0 26 switching two PRR boxcars that are being unloaded into military vehicles and soldiers boarding a troop train. There will also be a set-up featuring the Big Boy in a scene based on a 1940s photo of two soldiers giving the "V" victory sign to the engineer.

Tickets are $15 and will be available at the gate. Lumedyne lighting will be provided by Steve Barry, Fred Jones, Frank Etzel, Kermit Geary and Joe Calisi. 


We are readying the new site and preparing for our "magazine" format for a June 1 debut.  We are currently still looking for a few individuals to round out the debut.  We are in need of columnists from Indiana, Illinois, Florida and a few others.  We are also beginning to accept more photos/slides of news events and feature material.  If you are interested in joining the ERN staff or contributing feature material, please contact Kevin Burkholder at ern-kevin@juno.com  or KBurkholder@psghs.edu (NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS) for more details.   


Please check this location daily, as new information will be posted, as it becomes available. If you have news to report or information regarding railroads in the Eastern United States, please send e-mail to J. Alex Lang at jlang@westol.com
