FORESTS, MOUNTAINS, RIVERS AND RAILS
Presented by John Taibi, Author
John Taibi is a Railroad Environmentalist and Railroad Archeologist who has authored 13 books and over 120 short stories about railroading in New York State. His work embodies the relationship between the railroads and the communities, businesses and people it serves. His writing is about the countryside and community that happen to have a railroad running through them. In his program, “Forests, Mountains, Rivers and Rails” he continues this theme, applying it to the Adirondack Region through which the former New York Central Railroad’s Adirondack Division had pierced the heart of the Park. He lives in the former New York, Ontario & Western Railway station that he has restored in Munnsville, New York, and is a popular speaker throughout the region because his talks are entertaining as well as informative.
Please bring snacks to share. Decaf will be provided.
