Page 3 - 2010 Society Annual Meeting
Many readers noticed that gremlins snuck in and changed the date of the annual meeting for our Society. The date of the annual meeting is the second Saturday in June, which this year falls on Saturday, June 12, 2010 and not June 14th as reported in the Timetable.

In this excellent article, in the captions for photos 1 and 2, the names of the photographers were inadvertently switched. The corrected captions appear below with the full-color version of the photographs
Rudy Fischer provides the following additional information about the photographs:
"John McGrain (and not Ralph Morgan) took the upper photo from the Fallston station's west side platform on November 12, 1958. And Ralph Morgan took the lower photo, that shows the east side of the Fallston station in 1955.
In early 1940's Fallston station had light gray siding with darker gray trim, and by mid-1950's (and possibly earlier) it had been repainted to color scheme in the bottom photo. Also note that between 1955 and November 1958, that wood siding on Fallston store (at northwest corner of Main Street grade crossing) was changed from cream or tan to what appears to be a very light gray or white.
In the upper photo, the 2-1/2 story structure visible in distance is the Reckord Mill (and later was W. E. Robinson Mill). Mill was served by a siding located along structure's east side, and all buildings seen in these two photos still stand in 2010."
Timetable Editor Art Kupersteain provides this full color version of Photo 5 of the article, which is his Photoshopped version of the Pensupreme Ice Cream sign that he developed for his model.

Reader Gary Heiland noticed a typo in the caption for Photo 1:
"Interesting caption on page 12 of the Winter 2010 Timetable, though I think the reporting marks for the Maryland and Maryland ash car might spark a response from the Mars Candy Company. :-)"
Of course, that caption should say "Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad" instead.
