February ARRC Program Will Take Us to Indiana, Western Ohio and West Virginia Hills ‘n Hollers

Every year Jerry Jordak gets together with a couple of friends and they attend the Penn Central Historical Society meeting.

They also spend time traveling in the region where the convention is being held in a ritual they call their annual bogus adventure.

Last year the PC group met in Elkhart, Ind., where they were treated to a tour of the Norfolk Southern yard there.

NS even brought in the Penn Central, New York Central and Pennsylvania Railroad heritage locomotives.

Jerry and his friends also spent time railfanning on the NS Chicago Line, the South Shore and other rail lines in Indiana and western Ohio.

He’ll be showing us some of what he captured during a program that he’ll be presenting at the February meeting of the Akron Railroad Club.

The program will also include some images that Jerry made during a Columbus Day weekend venture to West Virginia last October.

That included a visit to the Durbin & Greenbrier Railroad for a photo freight charter and some CSX action near Grafton.

The club will meet this Friday (Feb. 27) at 8 p.m. with a half-hour business meeting followed by the program at approximately 8:45 p.m. The club meets at the New Horizons Christian Church, 290 Darrow Road, in Akron.

Some members gather at about 6 p.m. for dinner at Duffy’s Grill, 231 Darrow Road. Following the meeting, members meet at the Eat ‘n Park restaurant at Howe and Main streets in Cuyahoga Falls for a late dinner, dessert or an early breakfast.

Visitors are always welcome at Akron Railroad Club meetings.
