Taking a moment to think of all the men and women who sacrifice their time for the greater good of our country, those who can't celebrate with family on a day we associate with large family gatherings and bountiful feasts. From our military, police and transportation workers, take pause to give thanks to the people who make these sacrifices for the good of our nation.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Friends,

The year 2013 has been yet another year of incredible growth for the Main Line Project. Tallying five lectures, a new website, 29 blog posts, 10 field visits to former Pennsylvania Railroad facilities and now commercial project commissions I look back and wonder how I was able to do anything else this year! As we near Thanksgiving I want to say thank you to all of you who have shared your knowledge, supported me and encouraged this project, justifying the countless hours of work I have invested. Having the opportunity to work with so many like-minded people and share with such a diverse community is truly what makes the project so rewarding.

From my family to yours, have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

Michael Froio

Dear Friends,

The year 2012 has been incredible for the Mainline Project, making new work, new friends and opening new opportunities for 2013. Since I started writing about the project here in June of 2010 traffic on the blog has grown from just sixty views a month to a current average of 1500 a month and unceremoniously in the last few weeks I published post # 100. What started as a personal investigation of the fabled Pennsylvania Railroad has turned into a wonderful experience, sharing information, personal accounts and imagery with so many great people.

As we near Thanksgiving I want to say thank you to all of you who have shared your knowledge, supported me and encouraged this project, justifying the countless hours of work I have invested. Having the opportunity to work with so many like-minded people and share this project with such a diverse community is truly what makes the project so rewarding.

From my family to yours, have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

Michael Froio
