Coming this way in the not too distant
future a new dynamic web page as authored and graphacized by our very
own Al Barten erstwhile editor of the paper Transfer.
In the meantime, the following is a
synopsis of the lives and times of The Shelburne Falls Trolley
Steven Gardner, our young Hampshire
intern is firmly on board with all fours as they say and is making his
presence felt in all departments. A very very badly needed shot of
adrenaline for this project.
The restoration of number ten is
going at a rapid pace. Inside finish work is now being pursued. Car
painting should start by 5/15. Trucks should be under the body by 5/29.
If you've got the time and energy we still need some more volunteers
for the glory work ahead.
Guilford buys airline, Pan Am that
is. Not exactly SF&C news but outsiders always want to know what
power we've seen at Guilford lately. So now you know: 727s. Unsure
whether pilots will go with UTU or BLE, but, as always, we'll try to
keep you informed.
Museum annual dinner is scheduled
for June fifth. Festivities start at five PM with tours of the almost
completely restored car. Music by the acapella Trolley Stop Four.
Dinner by the Eagles includes all the normal things that you expect at
a turkey dinner including of course, turkey. Last but not least, the
piece de resistance, the pinnacle of post gustatory experience, the
inimitable, persistent, ever talking in a state of delirium Tony Jewell
will present a slide and video show exposing, er-uh, reviewing the
restoration program up to this point. Throw in comradeship, the chance
to see a Guilford train, maybe even a plane, includes a bus ride from
the Eagles to the rail yard/airport from 5 to 6, all for $15.00. No
wonder we're broke!!!
