Union Pacific -- a railroad important to U.S. History
Union Pacific -- the railroad established by Congress and Abraham Lincoln to span the continent - has had some very tough growing pains recently. But it is surviving and many believe it to be the most important American railroad.

The Central New England Railway Bus Tour 2010
The Central New England Railway (CNE) came from northern Connecticut and west across the Hudson River in New York to Maybrook. It crossed the great bridge at Poughkeepsie. It later became part of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad. In the past few years our tours have covered almost all of the old CNE except for the Springfield branch. For 2010 we plan to go back to the east end and start over. The tentative plan is to tour the area between Hartford and Collinsville and include most of the Springfield branch.
