I knew Dick and several of his friends and crew members; never rode with them but did get a tour of the car at one time. It was kept for service at DeWitt station in Syracuse, NY. One of its regular runs was in late fall: deadhead to Boston then to Penn Station, NY to pick up two dogs and carry them to someplace in Florida then deadhead back to Syracuse. In Spring, deadhead to Florida, pick up the dogs, carry to Penn Sta, deadhead to Boston to Syracuse. Seems like the dogs didn't like flying with the mistress so she made arrangements for the car and the trip. With no West Side connection into NYP at the time, the only commercial choice (i.e. passenger train route service) was via Boston.

No fees, just let us know you want to join the ride and pay your fares. Ask to be on our email list or find us on FB as RIDEWITHMEHENRY (all caps) to get descriptions of each outing.
