In The April ARRC eBulletin

April cover

The cover story of the April edition of the Akron Railroad Club eBulletin focuses on 45 years of Amtrak in Northeast Ohio. The national rail passenger carrier will celebrate its 45th anniversary on May 1. When Amtrak began, it had one train, the Chicago-New York Broadway Limited, which stopped only in Canton and Crestline.

Since then three pairs of Amtrak trains have come and gone in Northeast Ohio until today the only trains are the Capitol Limited and Lake Shore Limited.

Also in the April edition is coverage of the 12th annual McKay Day outing in Berea in early April. The Interchange Track page takes a look at the latest railroad industry news and ARRC President Craig Sanders suggests in his Clear Block Ahead column that dwindling participation in some club events means that those events may have run their course.
