Dr. Brent Glass was the featured speaker at a dinner hosted by the NRRHoF in Duluth, Minnesota, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Lexington Group in Transportation History. Founded in the early 1940s, the Lexington Group is a non-profit educational organization that explores all aspects of transportation history—although they are specifically interested in railroads.
Glass is Director Emeritus of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History and serves as Chair of the NRRHoF’s Engines of Freedom Interpretive Committee. He spoke to approximately 20 friends and supporters about the significant role the Engines of Freedom visitor center will play in establishing public awareness about railroads and their importance in building our nation and shaping its future. Attendees represented short line and Class I railroads, the private railcar community and NRRHoF partner organizations.
