It's an exciting day at the New Haven's
railroad station in Providence, Rhode Island as American Car Foundry's "Talgo
Train" arrives for display. Hundreds of people came to visit this "train of the
future." Several decades later, another "Talgo" would make an appearance on the
"Shore Line," testing and demonstrating on behalf of the CONEG (Coalition of New
England Governors) high speed rail program.
More info and items from the collection of Marc Frattasio regarding this "Train of the Future" can be found on the NHRHTA web site!
