To all interested in the Arcade & Attica,

In the old RR.Net I would search the New York Railroads Forum to see what was new on the A&A. My interest came about after I had the opportunity to meet and work with the folks at the A&A - purchasing and removing an 86' locomotive turntable from their property. They're a hard working group of serious railroaders.

I hope this page can be a place where fans and supporters of the A&A can come together to discuss the railroad, it's equipment, it's growth and it's planned events and attractions. I look forward to the day I can travel the 450 miles back to Arcade for a visit, until then, I hope to meet and greet others who recognize the road for the gem that it is - right here.

Indeed, the A&A is one of our favorites, too.

As a long time fan of the little railroad that could, having rode on it a dozen or so times and shot hundreds of pictures of its equipment, it is nice to see that others share my same passion. I only hope that the repairs will be done for the 2005 season. Last time I checked with the manager, she said they were low on funds and didn't have enough to complete it. How sad :(

I agree. Still wear my A&A T-shirt every summer. They seem to have a dedicated crew. Last rode it in 2002(?)and it was like one big happy family.

So good to see you on line! How ya doin! Alls well on Long Island! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in PA. I see you're in Altoona, I have a good friend who recently moved to Holidayburg. Volunteers at the Railroader's Memorial Museum and has been doing some volunteer work on teh rolling stock. The turntable is still not in the ground but is mostly painted and lettered, lookin' good.
