Transportation to Buffalo
Through the efforts of Walter H. Van Winkle, chairman of the Committee on Transportation of the Water Works Manufacturers’ Association, the details of transportation have been satisfactorily arranged for those who intend to go to the convention of the American Water Works Association at Buffalo, N. Y., on June 9 to 13, from New York City and Philadelphia and their vicinity. The plan, as announced in another column is to leave New York City via the Lehigh Valley Railroad, at 8:50 a. m., on Sunday, June 8, arriving in Buffalo, at 8:05 p. m., making the trip a daylight one throughout. The scenery along the route of the Lehigh Valley is unsurpassed, and the trip to the convention city should be a very pleasant one. Pullman cars are to he furnished the party, the train chosen being the Black Diamond Express, from the Pennsylvania Station, the Philadelphia party joining the others at Bethlehem.
As the prospects for an unusually large attendance at the Buffalo convention are very bright, it is probable that other parties with special transportation arrangements will be organized, as the plan of traveling en masse has many advantages, altogether outside of the question of rates. The opportunity for delegates from sections of the country to get together en route and talk over matters pertaining to the welfare of the association and the subjects to be brought up at the convention is a very important one, and of great benefit to all concerned. Get your reservation early.
