The 16th Annual Hooksett, NH Lions Lions Club Railroad Show! Another great show! (Those Lions sure know their way around trains, and railroading)!!  In addition to meeting folks, signing my book, The Silver Hill Boys and the Secret Railroad Club, we all enjoyed participating and listening to wonderful conversations about trains. A great time for me to sell duplicate RR memorabilia, photographs, mostly pictures of The Green Mountain Railroad of Vermont, and some classic shots of Steamtown, when it was located in Bellows Falls, VT. 
Our line of New England RR Postcards was well received, proudly displayed on my new revolving postcard rack. In an earlier blog I mentioned some readers around the country have e-mailed me about having grown up in the Silver Hill area. One gentleman took some exceptional photos in the 1940’s and 1950’s. As many of you know, from reading the book, the “signal light” to the west of Silver Hill Bridge is highlighted many times.
Soon we’ll have available a post card of “Jackie” beside that all important signal light….truly a classic shot from way back in those magical days. I can hardly wait for you to see it. In addition, soon to be available as a poscard a real nice shot of a B&M steam engine and tender heading down grade toward Boston located on the tracks almost right in front of where the Silver Hill Boys had their clubhouse! The photo of a B&M train with diesel power will soon be available, heading up grade, this one, rolling west, almost beside the signal light.
