NEXT MEETING . . .
Sunday August 9, 2020 – 3:00 - 5:00PM Division Picnic/Train Watching
Rain date: Sunday August 23, 2020
At this Meeting and in this Issue . . .
12” = 1’ Railroad: Since we are unable to hold our regular picnic, we have decided to combine it with our annual train watching event at trackside behind the Tractor Supply, 6641 Manlius Center Road, East Syracuse, NY 13057. (See the back page for driving directions.) This is near the site of the former NY Central/Amtrak station. Bring your own seating, camera, whatever food and non-alcoholic beverage you like. In consideration of everyone’s health and safety, PLEASE WEAR FACE COVERING AND BRING YOUR HAND SANITIZER. Remember that 6 foot spacing should be maintained at all times. Many of us are at-risk of serious complications if infected. As always, use your best judgement regarding your degree of comfort and participation, and stay home if you feel ill.
Division Information: There is typically no Division business conducted at this event, however, we do plan to present the MOW Award to a very deserving member.
Division Raffle: The raffle continues to be socially distant. Maybe next time.
Clinic: A demonstration of modern railroad prototype practice will be conducted by the CSX Railroad. There will also be a visual inspection of the new Intermodal Facility recently constructed near this site. Photo opportunities will be provided at no additional charge.
Rain Date: The picture at left may remind you that last year’s Train Watching ended rather abruptly with a huge thunderstorm. Should we need to cancel due to rain, we will reschedule for the original Train Watching date of August 23. If we are able to hold the event August 9, an informal poll will be taken to determine if we want to do it again August 23.
