The Boonton Yard shop building construction has begun; hopefully the building will be completed in the next couple of months.

Star Trak is continuing to work on our equipment at Boonton yard.

The URHS is still negotiating with Robert Franzen, the owner of the twin NYC Dining cars currently located in South Carolina. The URHS is offering to swap Robert four of their green coaches for his two diner cars. The URHS and Robert are working out the details; more information will follow as it becomes available.

URHS signed a lease agreement with the Black River Historical Trust for the Erie SW-9 #436. The BRHT will be using this locomotive for the 2012 operating season for their passenger trains on the Black River & Western Railroad.

Below are a couple of upcoming URHS member group’s model train / railroad shows that I would like to share with VRA members:

• The ELHS Spring meeting will be held on April 15, 2012 at the Parsippany Holiday Inn. The ELHS is looking for presenters for any DL&W, E-L or Erie RR theme shows.

• Jersey Central Rwy. HS: Mother Seton HS, Clark, NJ- March 4, 2012 – Railroadiana Show & Sale.
