The Society’s 2002 calendar is now available. Once again our calendar features two paintings by the late Howard Fogg, and which were part of the collection gathered and published by the late John W. Barriger when he was the president of the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie. On the cover the famous speed king 999 and the Empire State Express are shown in the Mohawk Valley, enroute to the 112.5 mph run west of Batavia in 1893. On the back cover is Gateway Yard, Youngstown, Ohio in a wintry Christmas scene.
