Cover Title: Convention '95! The N&WHS in Petersburg
Cover Subtitle: Special All Passenger Issue
On the Cover: For many, the highlight of the convention was the tour of Bob Claytor's former private car, the Claytor Lake, generously brought to Crewe by Norfolk Southern for our convention. Details on the J-adorned water tower in the background (it really isn't attached to the car) can be found on page 13.
