| May/June 1978

GEORGE WEBBERLEY, 62, of Bangor, Pennsylvania, died suddenly January 20, 1978. George was a member of the Blue Mountain Gas & Steam Engine Association. His interest in old engines prompted him to be the first to volunteer for any kind of work in the club. Along with engines, George was interested in steam trains- He traveled across the United States to experience the thrill of riding on hundreds of restored railways. George will be missed by many of his friends and those who knew him as a railroad enthusiast.
