NEMES Monthly Meeting

August 2012


I must have really been off my stride on this evening as I only took 4 (FOUR!) photos.  So that will have to do.

Our speaker was very interesting with his tales of keeping the T up and running.  For those who do not live in Massachusetts the T is the Boston Metropolitan region public transportation service.  

Here is a link to his Power Point slide show.  It is in PPTX format so if you run an ancient version of MS Office as I do you may not be able to view it.  I have asked Rich Baker, who sent it along to me, to see if he can save a PPS version and if I get that I will add it to the page.

Our speaker this month will be Ed Bellanger. d is with the MBTA Everett Shops, the maintenance facility for the MBTA where repairs are made for rolling stock used through the MBTA system. Some of the topics Ed will speak on are the need for repairs on some of the old equipment that parts are no longer made for and the ingenuity the maintenance crew uses to keep the equipment running.

Direct from Ed Bellanger are these comments:  My presentation will cover the activities that go on in the Everett Main Repair Facility. These include twelve (12) different departments, and will touch on a variety of projects across the state of Massachusetts and the MBTA. It will cover the equipment and trades that make and repair the parts used to keep the T moving.



If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page.  Please sent to   To identify a photo just hover your cursor over the photo and a tag should pop up.  Please use the last three digits of the tag to identify the photo. For  example if the tag came up  DSC03974.jpg (205067 bytes) the info I would need is 976.jpg. If this is a multi page unit the page number would also be useful.
