Program Changed for ARRC Meeting

The program for the November Akron Railroad Club meeting has been changed.

The program at the Nov. 26 meeting will now be presented by Todd Dillon who plans to show digital images of Amtrak operations, Nickel Plate Road 765 on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, Chicago Metra commuter trains and other rail images.

Ron McElrath had been scheduled to present a program titled Amtrak at 50, but it will now be shown at the February 2022 meeting.

The ARRC meeting will begin at 8 p.m. at the New Horizons Christian Church in Akron.

Officers for 2022 will also be elected during the business portion of the meeting with nominations being made from the floor.

Further details have also been released about the ARRC’s Dec. 4 end of year dinner.

The event is limited to 40 attendees and reservations are required. The dinner will begin at 5 p.m. at the New Era Restaurant at 10 Massillon Road in Akron.

The program is being presented by Jerry Jordak and is titled  My Life Trackside Behind The Camera.

Jordak is a member of the Pennsylvania Railroad, Conrail, and Anthracite Historical Societies and serves as a trustee and was a founding member of the Penn Central Historical Society.

He has photographed extensively the railroad operations of Northeast Ohio and in the eastern United States, particularly in Pennsylvania.
