The Bedford Boomer Model Railroad Club's September 27th monthly meeting will feature a special presentation by David Fraser on Train Control, entitled: "Before PTC" (PTC = Positive Train Control)
David worked for the B&M - PanAm railroad for over 38 years as a signalman, installing and repairing train signals, crossing gates, and other electronics associated with the operations and movement of freight and passenger trains throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. He will talk about his experiences, present some of the equipment he worked on, discuss problems he encountered and have a Q& A session.
This is a unique opportunity to understand the daily activities of someone's whose hands-on activities allowed trains to operate safely and efficiently.
