Feb 10Th program:   Brian Banta  slides.
I will have a verity of subjects;  Most slides are 1970 through 1990, some Old reproduction.
Covers several RRs.  Have five trays so far, and building.
As I sort through storage boxes, I keep finding slides.  Found two boxes full of slides that I do not know the subject !!!!!!!

At tonight's program we had 33 folks in attendance. We also had 5 new folks join us tonight. As usual Bruce Vogel put on another great program. Tonight's program was on Trolley Cars. It was a Tribute to the Late Ron Stuckey. Ron Loved his Trolley Cars and Not even a Steam Locomotive could change his mind. Ron is Missed by all of us at the National Railway Historical Society and Rail Fans of Indianapolis. We all know that Ron was with us tonight and even though not in person, He too enjoyed this program. To Ron our Friend, Rest In Peace. God Bless You.

There is a Correction on the Program. I stated that it is on Peabody Coal. It is on YankeeTown Dock Corp. It is a Good Program. Sorry about that.
