Since time goes flitting by so fast, I’ll give a quick run-down of my last two months, which doesn’t include everything, but you’ll get the idea. When I have more time, I need to expound on some of the things we discovered.
Wherein we investigate for several days along the West Shore trail of Onondaga Lake, where there were resorts in the old days. More on this when I have time (haha).
Went to the New York Museum of Transportation and rode this real trolley with a real Pantogragh!!
We try swimming on May 21, and it is c-o-l-d!
The NYCRR used to run under the Erie Canal at this point, and since they were digging up the road, we had to investigate.
We (OHA) had a Ghostwalk at Oakwood Cemetery
We went to the Central Square Railroad Museum, where they are redoing Syracuse Trolley Car #1036
Went swimming at Oneida Lake on Independence Day and almost drowned because the wind and waves were so high. No pics. Just glad to be alive.
Two CSX trains collide because somebody missed a signal. The train that got run into was already gone by the time I got there, leaving behind the very last part of it.
Attempted to listen to some music at Onondaga Park, but it was lousy.
OHA Museum reopened and it is totally wonderful now! This is one view of the new Gift Gallery, with shelving from Borders which closed in Carousel Mall earlier this year.
Went to Valley Field Days, but it was CROWDED, so didn’t get to ride my ride.
Drove down Butternut Street, which is all ripped up, and saw double trolley tracks.
