History of the Flying Yankee by Bob Kotsonis at the May 15th Membership Meeting of the 470 Railroad Club


   Bob Kotsonis, Treasurer of the Flying Yankee Association, will review the modern history of the Flying Yankee. He will discuss the attempts made by multiple groups to restore and operate it. He will review the current status and condition of the train and the Flying Yankee Association's work to convince the State of New Hampshire to transfer ownership. Bob is a lifelong resident of Maine and New Hampshire, and he is a retired healthcare executive. He has a keen interest in the history of New England railroads, which led him to work with others to restart the restoration of the Flying Yankee. Bob played a central role in the State discussions and planning the strategy for the Flying Yankee's future.
