Rutland's Chatham Division

 Classic Trains - Summer 2012  
" Remembering the Corkscrew"
by Jim Shaughnessy

If you are a Rutland Ry. fan you will want to read this article. In the current issue of Classic Trains one will find a great six page article by Jim Shaughnessy recalling a place and time not many of us ever saw, plus a little history with a great group of photos of the Rutland's Chatham Division. To many it was known as the Corkscrew. Jim tells his story of  his youthful days spent on the Corkscrew. In the same issue I should mention there is a neat article by my friend and past CVRHS contributor Jack Swanberg about his childhood visit to a NYC location. If you are interested in E-units you are in luck as the history of the units with many photos makes up the main feature...George Dutka
