We are well into planning and preparations for another B&S Symposium. It will be held on August 11 & 12 (Sat. & Sun.) and hosted at the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum located on US Route 6, east of Coudersport. Mark your calendars now!
The format will be very similar to that Symposium we conducted last August at DuBois. If you attended that one, you will not be disappointed with this next gathering. We will have full access to the Museum which has recently been renovated into a beautiful facility honoring this once huge industry in the Commonwealth. Several meals and snacks will be provided as part of your fee. There are nearby motels to facilitate our stay in central Potter County. A new feature being planned are an on-site Catholic Mass and a Protestant Ceremony, each service honoring recently deceased employees of the Wellsville Addison & Galeton RR, a touching remembrance.
The Potter County Historical Society is presenting this Symposium and they will soon be issuing a brochure with the salient details you need to register. They and the Museum will also soon have notice of the meeting on their web sites. Don’t miss this one!

While the role of the Central interchanging with the WAG/B&O/B&S was small, it was huge for the Potter-Tioga County Region.
