Norm Barrett

The D&H and the O&W in the Scranton area

Join us at the Saratoga Springs Public library Community room to be regaled by tales of the D&H and the O&W as told by a lifelong resident of Dickson City/Scranton and former D&H employee Norm Barrett.

Norm started his career with the D&H in 1979 as a trainman and rose through the ranks to become Road Foreman of Engines and Trainmaster. He retired from CP as a regional Director in 2010.

He is a longtime volunteer at the Steamtown National Historic site and is in charge of the Canadian Pacific Holiday train.

Norm's extensive knowledge of both railroading and the D&H and O&W will be a delight to experience. We look forward to seeing you there. Parking can be limited so please be sure to utilize the parking garage near the library.
