MARCH 15 SOCIAL MEETING of the WM Chapter NRHS will be held at 7 PM on Wednesday evening in the Cumberland Railroad Museum at 17 Howard Street, among the shops at Canal Place in Cumberland MD. Admission is free and open to the public. The nearest parking is available in the area beneath the Interstate Route 68 bridge on the north side of Howard Street, across from the historic Footer’s Dye Works building. Parking space is free on a first-come basis. Be careful when crossing Howard Street because motor vehicles do not always fully stop at the bottom of westbound Exit 43B ramp.
Railroad photographer and author Tom Biery will show his Kodachrome slide collection of the Western Maryland Railway in the Cumberland area. The photographs will be projected on a large screen; they cover the 1960-1970 era, before Wild Mary was absorbed into the Chessie System.
