Penn Central History Program Set for April 8

A presentation on the history of the Penn Central will be given on April 8 in Anderson, Indiana.

The program begins at 2 p.m. in the  Bowman Room of the Madison County Historical Society at 7 West 11th Street.

Roger Hensley will give a Power Point presentation that will briefly cover the history of the New York Central and the Pennsylvania Railroads leading up to the merger of the railroads to form Penn Central in 1968.

Most of the program will focus on the Penn Central years with some attention paid to Conrail, CSX and Norfolk Southern.
Penn Central existed from Feb. 1, 1968, to April 1, 1976, when it was supplanted by Conrail.

Parking for the event is available in the lot across the street. After the program, the Train Room will be open for visitors.
