I did attend. I was very impressed, had never seen any of the photos before in my 6 years of research . Rich was very well versed in the history of the LHR. He included the whole line from Phillipsburg SEP Bridge to Maybrook, as well as engine shots from Allentown , Fremansburg etc. Mainly diesel shots from his collection, but there were a few steam shots as well as fan trip specials including the 1960 Centennial. Some of my favorite shots were of the snowplows on the Century 420's at work and covered in snow. Interestingly, he showed a photo of a mid 1960's fan trip, and a gentleman in the audience recognized himself in the pic. Great show, I'd highly recommend catching Mr Taylor at a presentation anytime you get the opportunity.
