14499RE: The upstate trolley list
- Apr 7, 2010Hi Paul,
I was actually referring to a Yahoo discussion list Upstate NY Trolley run by this fellow, Gino who is an FJ&G trolley affecianado. The FJ&G group which he also runs focuses on the steam and electric divisions of the FJ&G. I have CC'd this email, to both lists and I am sure Gino will get back to you.
As an aside, the FJ&G group is an informal group of folks with a few people who have some great organizational skills. Last year we were able to gain access to the old Mountain Lake Electric Railway ROW and visit the site of a horrific trolley crash that took place 100 years ago.
As for a web site I urge you to go to Gino's Railpage. You're gonna have fun there! I contributed some of the materials. I guess it would be fair to say that in the Mohawk Valley Gino's rail related interests are very similar to mine.
I nguess you picked me up on the D&H list. These two lists are a little less active but lots of fun.
