Presenter, Ron Baile, is a long-time train watcher, railroad engineer and master model railroader. His fascination with the Camden, Gloucester & Mt. Ephraim Railway, lies in the fact that for his first 35 years he grew up in sight of it.
Incorporated in 1873 by passengers longing for a railroad from Kaighn’s Point to Gloucester City and Mt. Ephraim Borough, the line exists today as a branch of the Conrail System. Ron continues to watch and photograph the line and its many changes as it continues to serve modern industry.
Ron’s credentials include his position as Current Vice President of the West Jersey Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, Engineer and Conductor at Cape May Seashore Lines Railroad, Master Model Railroader No. 496, and National Model Railroad Association member.
The Hunter-Lawrence-Jessup House Museum will be open immediately following the program and guests are invited to view the current exhibit “Trains: All Aboard” that includes the Tyler Family collection of Tyco model trains, additional HO, O, and N scale trains, plus Tyco and railroad memorabilia from throughout the South Jersey area.
Open to the public!
