Each Boston Chapter meeting begins with a short business session and current local railroad and transit issues are discussed. Each meeting has an entertainment program usually slides, sometimes film, current or historic on local, national or even foreign railroad, transit or traction subjects. The content is chosen by the presenter. From time to time related material has been donated to the Chapter and it is offered for sale to members first and at reasonable prices. Several members have authored books on local subjects and a number have contributed their materials to railroad and traction books both currently in or out of print. Meetings are open to everyone.
