 Today's presentation:       DISPATCHING THE ROUTE OF THE MINUTEMAN.                     --                       -- THE INSIDE STORY --                                                              Guest speaker, Carl Senftleben, spent 18 years with the B&M RR and 18 more with Amtrak. Starting as night clerk at B&M's Fitchburg yard, then working various tower and operating jobs, advancing up the B&M dispatcher ranks, he eventually became Chief Dispatcher and then Superintendent of Train Operations for Amtrak-Boston.  Carl will relate his experiences from B&M "common carrier status" to Amtrak Acelas and our now intense Commuter Rail, with insight and humor.  He probably knows it all because he has seen it all!                                                                        Do not miss this!!                                                                             Location is Rogers Hall on Rogers St. in Lowell, Ma.  Free parking across the street.
