Membership Renewal Process Changes

For 2015, members will receive two separate renewal notices – one from the Potomac Chapter and one from the national NRHS.  Members will need to make separate payments to the Potomac Chapter and national NRHS.

Potomac Chapter will mail its renewal notices via the U.S. Postal Service before the end of October. Members and Associates will need to return the renewal form with their check by December 31.

We aren’t sure of the national NRHS' plans for the renewal process. We expect them to mail renewal notices to Members in the same time frame. Potomac Chapter Associates aren’t members of the National NRHS and won’t receive a renewal notice from them.

NRHS business model — The national board of directors rejected the proposed new business model at their September 20 meeting. The proposal would have radically changed the relationship with the chapters. The national organization is expected to take action in the near future to address its problems, but the nature of those changes is uncertain. Watch the national website for more information.

Requiem for a CPL - CSX Baltimore
CPL bridge dismantled
On May 17, 2014, CSX crews dismantled the color position light (CPL) signal bridge, dwarfs, and masts at the Bailey's Wye interlocking in downtown Baltimore. Chapter members John and Stephen Sery made a video to document the moment and pay tribute to those long-standing sentinels of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.

Meetings — We meet the third Tuesday of every month at 8:00 PM in the Montgomery Country Executive Office Building, 101 Monroe Street, Rockville, MD. We welcome visitors. Get directions.
