Thanks to everyone who attended our 2011 Annual Meeting in Albany, New York, held this past weekend April 29-May 1. A full report with photos will follow in the next few days. During the weekend, the Society held elections for officers. Rich Stoving will assume the president's office for the coming term. There were no other changes to our slate of officers. On behalf of the Society, we thank Darwin Simonaitis for his service to the organization as president. Regular readers may recognize Rich Stoving as the editor of the Central Headlight, our quarterly magazine. Rest assured, Rich will continue in this role as well.
Speaking of which, The latest issue of the Central Headlight is in the mail and on its way to current NYCSHS members! In this issue, we take a look at New York Central marine operations in New York Harbor. Next, we learn how the 3001 Mohawk in Elkhart was "ransomed" from the Dallas Fairgrounds and brought back to Indiana. We continued our "Tales from 466" taking an insider's look at the events leading up to the Penn Central merger.
