Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railway Historical Society

2020 Calendar Honors the Great Edward S. Miller

The Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railway Historical Society 2020 calendar is available now.   It can be ordered online in our web store or via US mail (see below). As you have come to expect over the years, the calendar features photographs of local rail lines, provided by members or friends.  

This year all but one of the photographs is from the collection of Chapter Charter member Edward S. Miller, who passed away in 2010, at the age of 90.   This year, 2020, would be Ed’s 100th birthday if he was  still with us.  For this reason all the photos are from Ed Miller’s collection, except as noted.   

The 2020 Calendar sells for $ 10.00 and is shipped via first class mail.
