Rails to Sterling Forest

September 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Be a passenger on a virtual railroad trip on the Erie Railroad with author Kevin Olsen! Let’s take the scenic route and discover the definitive story of the Erie Railroad’s Greenwood Lake Division – from the railroad’s construction as the Montclair Railway to the line’s use by NJ Transit.

​Kevin Olsen is the Chemistry and Biochemistry Instrumentation Specialist at Montclair State University, where he earned a Master’s degree in Chemistry and a PhD in Environmental Management.  Kevin has published a number of papers related to chemical history. As a lifelong history enthusiast, model railroader, and lover of the North Jersey Highlands, he has also published papers on New Jersey’s transportation history. His second and most recent book is Rails to Sterling Forest: The History of the Erie’s Greenwood Lake Division.
