From the office of Harford County Councilman Jim McMahan:
My personal tribute to all who served. Thank you. Capt’n
MEMORIAL DAY 2011
The American Hero always comes through
To capture our hearts with a spirit so true
Some proudly are soldiers who march in harm’s way
Insuring our freedom, courageous they stay
While others come forth as civilians so brave
Determined in purpose, so steadfast to save
We should always keep clear a place in our heart
For each has a value beyond precious art
Their duty to country will not be surpassed
Please honor their courage, for some it’s their last
We live in a world which can be hard to bear
Thank God for these people, how greatly they care
Do ponder new heroes and what they will face
And pray for their safety no matter their place
Our heritage brings out the best, we all know
Our great book of heroes is destined to grow

The address for the exhibit is 650 Broad Street The display consist of a 1993 P40 Locomotive , a F40PH locomotive providing head end power, from 1988, a sleeper (not open/probably for the crew), three (3) baggage cars containing the numerous displays and a gift shop car. Lots of AMTRAK souvenirs available and they have some nice Walthers HO equipment for sale but it was pricey.
With all the kids returning from college after graduation does anyone have one of those small dorm room refrigerators they would sell me for the office? Capt’n Jim
