Saturday, September 25th DCNRHS hosted our annual picnic with a special guest, the members of the Potomac Chapter NRHS. The picnic featured a beautiful sunny day next to Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, at the Huntington Railroad Museum in Bowie, MD. Besides being the home to DCNRHS' railroad library (www.railroadlibrary.org) the location has a railroad switch tower, a freight house with a new railroad display funded by an NRHS Grant, and an Norfolk & Western Caboose. Best of all Amtrak put on a show of Acelas, long-distance, and Northeast Regional Trains. The museum is operated by the City of Bowie, MD.
About 55 people were in attendance for our annual summer get together.
