Another Title for New Year!

Our “host” for the last 13 or 14 months has been WordPress. They are great providing statistics on how well you do, who looks at you, and many other things.

Well! The most “clicks” on our WebSite and Blogs for 2017 was

New England, Berkshire & Western

Model Railroad Society at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

For us, this is a great honor!

My boss is a “Larry” (a St Lawrence University graduate) but always speaks highly of ice hockey rival RPI: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

So we must be doing something right to get the attention of their Model Railroad Society!

To quote from their WebSite: Since 1972, The Rensselaer Model Railroad Society has been constructing and refining an exhibit depicting the Delaware & Hudson and Rutland Railroads. Set in 1950, the thirty-five by 120-foot layout represents life in Troy, New York and points north in the Hudson and Champlain Valleys. The 1950s were a period of immense change for American railroads and the places they served. The transition from steam to diesel power marked a massive reduction in railroad employment. Growth of automotive culture shifted the center of town away from the tracks and downtowns. The exhibit captures the tail end of the railroad era – a time when railroads were the main movers of people and products and when most institutions were within walking distance of the tracks.

Great Going RPI: Hope we meet your expectations in 2018!
