The programs of DCNRHS are designed to teach and share information about railroading, past and present. Our programs unless other wise noted are free and open to the public. Many programs consistent of speakers presenting a topic with audio/visual aids such as pictures.
Inclement Weather Notice: In the event of inclement weather, our monthly program will be cancelled IF the school district in which the program is being presented is closed for the day or closes early. For Silver Spring this is Montgomery County, MD schools. For Alexandria this is Alexandria City Schools.
As an example, one of our recent programs was ""Wyoming and the Union Pacific" The program Included a trip across Wyoming state on an Amtrak-reroute (from the window of a train) and lots of Cheyenne, Sherman Hill, and Archer Hill photos dating back to 1979. Program by Dr. Bill Hakkarinen. We share many of the photos here, though without the narration and presentation they do not tell the fll story.
