The Oneida Railway Company: From Horsecars to Interurbans

February 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| free

John Taibi’s program is based on his recent book of the same title, which tells the tale of CNY’s only electrified third rail interurban system.  In his presentation, Mr. Taibi will explore the early life of the ORCo, examine why there was a need for this interurban system, take us for a ride along the route, and explain why this innovative service was abandoned after operating for a mere 23 years.  Free and open to the public.
