      Here's the other trip I know of.

      10/27/46- Capital District Railroad Club sponsors a fan trip from Fonda
      To Broadalbin.
      Engine 9 pulls coaches carrying over 175 people that day.

      There was also a trip involving the trolleys in the 30's, but I'm not
      sure of the date.
      There are some glimpses of it in the 8mm trolley movie. It's funny,
      according to
      Rand Warner's notes, there was a camera-fan trip in June of 1950. Is
      this the same
      trip covered in the "Classic Trains" article?
