Fair Train article in Trains Magazine
« on: January 22, 2007, 08:47:30 AM »
I just read a nice article in January's Trains Magazine on the Fair Train.  I had no idea that in the first year they transported 60,000 people to the State Fair.  I also didn't realize that an old family friend helped start this Fair Train.  His name is Ed Sargeant.  My dad use to talk highly of him as he was his foreman at Avon in the diesel shop.  He always referred to him as "Sarge".  It is also said there was a article written back in '84 on the first fair train.  It is always nice to see something positive written about volunteers and the hard work people do to keep something like this going.  Thanks for your dedication and time fellas.  It is well deserved.
