NEORHS To Meet Saturday in Randolph

May 19, 2017

The May meeting of the Northeastern Ohio Railway Historical Society will held on Saturday at the Town Hall building in Randolph.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. with food and videos. The business meeting will begin at 7 p.m. The meeting is expected to end by 10:30 p.m.

The Randolph Town Hall is located just north of the intersection of Ohio Route 44 and Waterloo Road.

NEORHS member David Mangold said that during business meeting there will be a discussion and planning conducted for future meetings.

Attendees are encouraged to bring digital images or slides to show. The program theme will be Amtrak because May 1 was the 46th anniversary of the national passenger carrier’s inauguration. Mangold said in an email message that images of pre-Amtrak passenger trains are welcome.

Pizza will be available with attendees asked to make a donation to defray its cost. They are also asked to bring snacks and beverages to share.

The June 17 NEORHS meeting will be a picnic held at the Hartville depot and feature an open projector.  There will be no meeting in July.

The picnic will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Maple Street Gallery, the former Wheeling & Lake Erie depot in downtown Hartville.

Attendees are asked to come early to help prepare the food and set up the picnic, and to bring an extra lawn chair if you have one.

The depot is located at 120 E. Maple St., just east of the intersection of Ohio routes 619 and 43, also known as East Maple and Prospect streets. The entrance is via Howard Court with parking behind the railroad car.

Dave said he is still looking for another grill to be used to cook the hot dogs and hamburgers.
