Cincinnati Union Terminal Tribute Programs Set

Two programs featuring photography of Cincinnati Union Terminal by former Trains magazine managing editor Wallace W. Abbey have been set in early November.

The programs will be presented by George W. Hamlin.

Titled Wally Abbey Visits Cincinnati Union Terminal, the programs will feature background on CUT and the railroads and trains that served it.

Abbey, who died in 2014, wrote an article about CUT that was published in the May 1953 issue of Trains.

His collection of 25,000 black and white negatives and 8,000 color slides is now housed at the Center for Railroad Photography & Art.

One presentation will be given during the Nov. 1 meeting of the Cincinnati Railroad Club at Harmony Lodge. More information is available at www.cincinnatirrclub.org.

Another presentation will be hosted on Nov. 2 by the Miami Valley Railfans at the West Carrollton Civic Center at 7 p.m.

During that presentation, club member David Oroszi will show photos of CUT from his collection. For more information, go to www.trainweb.org/mvr.
