On June 8, we resumed our weekday schedule of work on the M&NJ. Todays session was attended by K. C. Smith, Joe Weber, Charlie Roselius and Paul Trabert. We concentrated on clearing trees and brush near the newly built bridge south of Langlitz Road. We managed to clear enough brush to bring our motor cars to Waterloo Road. We have met Waterloo and it is ours! While inspecting the tracks south of Waterloo Road, we met Earl Smith of the Minisink Township Highway Department. He told us to contact the Town Clerk, Carol VanBuren who is a member of the Minisink Museum Commitee. Paul Trabert talked to her, and she will contact the museum historian and will try to determine the date of the last train ride on the tracks south of Slate Hill, NY. Earl Smith has also agreed to move a highway speed limit sign which is very close to the tracks at the Waterloo Road crossing. Our next goal is Dickison Road. This will probably be our final destination, since immediately south of Dickison Road is a missing rail. The gap can be seen just south of the crossing.
