 The Boston & Maine Railroad Historical Society will kick-off the 2018 / 2019 season with a presentation by Carl Byron entitled, Crossroads of New England: Ayer Junction from 1845 to today!  The B&M RR's historical connection to the west, the Fitchburg Div., passes through Ayer, and still hosts Pan Am (and Pan Am Southern) through and local freights as well as a daily parade of MBTA commuter trains. Carl's Power Point program will show how numerous branch and secondary lines intersected and crossed the Fitchburg route at Ayer. His knowledge of B&M history will provide interesting commentary, and he enjoys taking questions.  Get on board!                                                                                                         Location is Rogers Hall on Rogers St. in Lowell, Ma. Note earlier start time of 3:00PM., following conclusion of the BOD meeting. Free parking across the street.
