Tuesday meeting

We had a great meeting with Nat Karns from the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission on  Tuesday, 13 December, and here are two articles  about it:  

"Berkshire passenger rail advocate rallies community" from the Berkshire Eagle

"Connecticut may derail hopes for restoring Berkshires-to-Grand Central passenger rail service" from the Berkshire Edge

You can help in many ways. The simplest is to share our newsletters by email and on social media with your neighbors, colleagues, and legislators. You can support the Train Campaign by using our holiday cards this year, or by giving our gorgeous Berkshire townscape coffee mugs as gifts. See below for details, and drop in at the Chef's Shop in Great Barrington, one of our sponsors, who has a range of Train Campaign mugs for sale.

Donating is easy…and tax deductible!

Your support means that we can reach citizens, businesses, and arts and education organizations that will benefit from passenger train service. Volunteer your knowledge and expertise, or make a donation using a PayPal account or credit card at the link below (just choose the credit card option on the form).Donations can also be made by check, made payable to The Barrington Institute, with a project indicated if you want to support it specifically in the memo, e.g. “The Train Campaign.” Checks should be mailed to 122 Castle Street, Great Barrington, MA 01230.
