Retired dispatcher Gordon Smith relives his days at the Delaware and Hudson Railway at the Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's September 17 meeting

Gordon Smith as a young man is pictured on a classic Delaware and Hudson Alco unit.

The second clinic of our September 17 meeting will be held by Gordon Smith, a retired dispatcher for the Delaware & Hudson and Canadian Pacific. Gordon is a prolific rail fan with a treasure trove of material. His presentation will cover the D&H railroad operations over all four Subdivisions including some trackage rights shots, in the time period from 1969 until he was transferred to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1993 when CP consolidated the D&H train dispatchers with those of the SOO Line.

The meeting starts at 7:30 PM in the Tank Room at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard on September 17. Capacity at the Tank Room at the Legion is limited to 50 persons. The Legion requires all visitors to the building to show proof of full vaccination before entry. As of this writing, the province has mandated that masks will be required in all indoor public places.
