"WNYRHS Public Meeting - 5/19/22
|Our May program will be presented by society member
Geno Dailey covering a cross-country Amtrak trip he
completed in the Fall of 2019 riding a total of five Amtrak trains!
Among this trips highlights, we will take the Lake
Shore Limited from Buffalo to visit Cedar Point Amusement
Park in Sandusky, Ohio.
|We will then take the Lake Shore again to Chicago to go railfanning at Roosevelt Road
featuring Amtrak and Metra commuter trains as well as the famous Willis Tower before
taking the "long way" to get to Flagstaff, Arizona.
We'll see photos riding over the Mississippi River and the canyons of
Colorado through the Rocky Mountains as well as the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the
California Zephyr, one of Amtrak's most scenic routes! We'll then take a trip riding along
the west coast to Los Angeles on the Coast Starlight, before heading east to Flagstaff on the
|Once in the Grand Canyon State, we will head over to nearby Williams, AZ to take two
roundtrips on one of the finest tourist railroads in the country, the Grand Canyon Railway!
The first trip will be in a full-length Budd Dome Car and the second in the GCRY's
Luxury Parlor Car which features an open platform on the end. Taking a trip in both
cars will allow you to see this historic railroad from two distinctly different photo angles!
At the Grand Canyon, we will see photos from Hopi Point, Mohave Point as well as
the Grand Canyon Village along with a little nature photography thrown in as well.
We'll also make a quick stop on Historic Route 66 over to Winslow, AZ and see a couple
trains as well as a roadside attraction that is the story of a certain song from The Eagles!
This program is another great story about America that you definitely will not want to miss!
Hope to see you all at the meeting on Thursday!
