The Akron Railroad Club will get started in 2015 by meeting on Jan. 23 with David Mangold presenting the program.

Dave will be showing slides of different locomotives and trains that he’s photographed over the years during his travels as well as working days at Amtrak and Norfolk Southern.

We’ll see locomotives and trains in Chicago, at Conway Yard near Pittsburgh and on the Chicago Line of Norfolk Southern. The latter will include a cab ride.

The program will also feature a photo essay about building a railroad spur in Missouri for Burlington Northern, various museum pieces as well as odds and ends that have nothing to do with railroad operations. Also thrown in for good measure will be images of vintage postcards and some slides that Dave has purchased.

Time permitting, Dave may also show a PowerPoint presentation he gave to a railroad industry group on the history of locomotive cabs.

The January ARRC meeting will begin 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.

Dave Mangold Having Pizza Party on Saturday

January 2, 2015

Programs focusing on high speed railroad operations will highlight David Mangold’s annual new year/end of the year party on Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Randolph Town Hall

Pizza will be served and a slide projector and digital projector will be provided.

The Randolph Town Hall is located at 1639 Ohio Route 44 on the northwest corner of the intersection with Waterloo Road.

Guests are invited to make multimedia presentations by bringing maps, digital images, slides, and videos of high speed railroad operations to show.

Programs will focus on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, higher-speed railroad corridors and high speed freight and intermodal trains.

Dave reported that he will also be showing images of short line railroads we well because of his interest in those operations.

“Showing images of slow moving or stopped trains are depressing and discouraged because they remind the host of work,” Dave wrote in an e-mail message.

He then went on to say he hoped that he could attend his own party and not be stuck working on a slow-moving freight train.

Guests are invited to come early and visit the Barrel Run Crossing Winery at 3272 Industry Road before the party. They are also asked to bring beverages, pizza and snacks to be share as well as pizza coupons.

Mangold Quoted in Article About Alliance

April 24, 2014

An article about railfanning in Alliance that was published in The Repository of Canton featured an interview with Akron Railroad Club member David Mangold.

He told the Repository reporter how he became interested in trains by watching them pass by in Alliance and Rootstown.

But the story that Dave told that made the paper had to do with how he missed a train while in camping in Colorado.

He heard a train talking on the radio so he got into his rental car to find it.

“Of course I’m going to go chase the train,” Mangold told the newspaper. “Unfortunately, I waited for it and it outwaited me, and I ended up missing it on the third photo shoot. But that’s what happens when you’re chasing trains.”

Dave said he had traveled to Colorado on Amtrak to attend a mechanical engineer and transportation conference.

The article noted that Dave is a locomotive engineer for Norfolk Southern and previously worked for Amtrak. It also noted that he belongs to the East Canton Railroad Club and Akron Railroad Club, and is the director of activities and events at the Northeast Ohio Railroad Historical Society.

Dave told the reporter that he received a camera for his 18th birthday and has been taking photographs of trains ever since.

The article went on to note that Dave and other railfans prize getting photographs of Norfolk Southern’s heritage locomotives. “Those are the kind of trains that people chase,” Dave said.

Also interviewed and quoted in the article were Reggie McGee, the president of the East Canton Railroad Club; and Robin Crawford, a retiree who frequently watches trains at Alliance.

The East Canton club is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. McGee told The Repository that he became interested in trains as a small child and has gone through seven cameras in pursuit of his interest in photographing trains.
