This is a heads up for those planning to join us for the 2013 segment of the annual bus tour along various portions of the former Central New England Railway. The 2013 tour will be on April 7th (rain or shine).
This years trip will be the area around Millerton and , New York. There were 5 railroads in this area and 4 were predecessors of the CNE and New Haven RR. The plan is to start at 9:00 AM from the Millerton Post office lot on Century Blvd. We plan to cover Mt Riga, Boston Corners Silvernails and Pine Plains. The railroads in that area were the P&E, the P&C, the ND&C, and the R&C. As usual lunch will be provided on this trip.
We have planned this trip to reach as many of the remaining historical spots as our intrepid scouts could locate. In many cases we have had to rely on photographs, new and old, to fill in parts of the puzzle. We hope that you will gain a better understanding of the part that the railroads played in the history and development of New York.
As usual, everybody will get a copy of the 2013 CNE Tour guide book. We have a lot of ground to cover so we will have coffee and buses will roll at 9:00.
The cost of this year’s tour will be $55.00 per person and payment should be made out to:

Any money that is left after expenses will be used as “seed money” for next years trip.
As we did last year, we have two buses with 47 seats each. In past years we sold all seats and had a waiting list so don’t wait too long to send in your reservation. Please note that any request for refunds must be received thirty (30) or more days in advance of the tour date. If you can find a replacement to take your bus seat, that’s OK just let us know who it is. We have to know who to let onto the bus when the tour starts. If you can’t find a replacement then we may have somebody on the waiting list to suggest but we can’t refund money that has already been spent on tour expenses.
