PRRT&HS: New England Chapter Meeting Slated


From Tim Garner...

To: New England Chapter, PRRT&HS Members

Saturday, June 18, 2016 – Summer Chapter Meeting

Essex Steam Train and Riverboat – Valley Railroad Company – Essex, Conn.

On the Saturday before Fathers’ Day, we will gather at the Essex depot around 10:00 a.m. for an 11:00 a.m. train ride north. At the end of the line, we’ll transfer to the “Becky Thatcher” for a brief riverboat cruise on the Connecticut River. At the end of the cruise, we’ll re-board the train for the return to the Essex Depot. The steam train and riverboat combination ticket is $29 for adults which can be purchased online in advance. Many of us will want to pay the $12 extra fare to ride in style in a heavyweight Pullman parlor car ($41 total). The total trip is about 2.5 hours.

After the tour, we’ll convene for our business meeting over a late lunch (or early dinner) at the Penny Lane Pub in nearby Old Saybrook. Members’ families are welcome to join us.
