Conventions

Sep 14

AAPRCO’s “Green Mountain Flyer” special train, operated in support of our 40th annual convention, has caught the attention of the local news media, as well as photographers and videographers, from both the trackside perspective and in the air, by small plane and by remotely piloted drone.
