As the NYSWTHS mow crew takes the weekend off from the very intensive trackwork of the past 8 weeks, we would like to thank everyone who contributed to this years fundraiser. Some bought a tie for $100, while others contributed a smaller amount or a larger amount; trust me, the society is extremely thankful for every single contributor. While working the train on Saturday, a few riders reached down into their pockets & handed me $10 or $20 while on their way off the hack.....I cannot express how good this made me & the other crew members feel, after many long hot days of blood, sweat and tears spent 'in the guage'.
We are not just cutting down trees to keep the line clear anymore....we are literally in the midst of achieving our goal of (at least) class 1 track from Milford to Phillipsburg.
A very special "thank you" is in order for the Liberty Historic Railway of New Jersey (http://www.lhry.org
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;). Their mission is to provide direct monetary grants and other financial support to historic preservation projects and initiatives within the State of New Jersey. This great organization didn't just buy a tie, or ten......they donated a truckload of 160 ties!!
As always, there's room for anyone who wants to get their hands dirty & join our great crews on the railroad, message Donko142 here to get started.
