Post subject:  Valley Railroad PHOTO FREIGHT CANCELLED!!!

Dear Railfans,

I, Ryan Mack, along with Adam Christman, will be hosting a photo freight charter on Connecticut's premier tourist railroad, The Essex Steam Train, operated by the Valley Railroad Company. For the first time in nearly two decades, a photo freight consist will once again grace the rails of the former New Haven Valley line behind a steam locomotive. This charter is open to a limited number of participants and will occur on Saturday, November 15th, from 8:30am - 4:30pm. The organizers of the event anticipate numerous runbys with steam engine #97 and a vintage freight consist. The cost for the charter will be $150 dollars for the entire day.

*The Valley Railroad has set specific terms as far as payments for the charter are concerned. The railroad requires a deposit in July. They have also stated that the earlier deposits are made, the sooner that they can guarantee all requested freight cars will be part of the consist. Due to this, early payments will be greatly appreciated. However, the due date is in September. If you would like to make an early deposit of $50 to reserve your seat, and help guarantee that the charter occurs, that would be a tremendous help!

** There has been some initial interest in a night photo session as well. Please let me know if you would be interested in sticking around in Essex after the charter for a small night photo session with the freight train at the depot and the two Valley steam engines posed side by side. The more people who are interested, the smaller the extra cost would be.

If you would like an order form, please email me @ pennrailvideos@yahoo.com and you shall recieve one ASAP. *You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view form*. Please make the subject of the email 'Valley RR Order Form'. I thank everyone very much for showing strong interest in this photo charter. There has been a lot of work involved and we hope that this charter will be an enjoyable success.

Due to the un-expected circumstances, the charter on the Valley Railroad had to be canceled. We are terribly sorry for getting up everyone's hopes... we too were excited for this trip.

Often, an "uncooperative nature" stems from relationships that predictably end in inappropriate public editorial statements that would be better written, "Due to unexpected circumstances" rather than dissing any potential host organization. Just a suggestion from out west.

Absolutely correct! Also, please refrain from using statements like this when posting on RyPN. Please keep it professional.
