Join us on Zoom for another bonus summer presentation. All ERA members and friends anywhere in the world are invited to attend this exciting online event!
The presenter of our August meeting will be Andrew Ludasi. Andrew has traveled to Europe frequently, as well as having spent four weeks in Japan in April 2017. His show will feature Milan, Berlin, Cottbus, Hamburg, Takamatsu, Mexico City and a most recent trip to Colorado in September 2019, plus Lisbon and Sintra.
Our monthly meetings will be held via Zoom until we give prior notice of a return to the Roosevelt Hotel for live meetings. Starting with the June 2020 meeting, with the prior approval of each month’s speaker, Zoom presentations are being recorded and posted here and on our YouTube channel, ERA TV. Recordings will become available for viewing approximately two weeks after each meeting.

The Journal was published by the ERA from 1976 through 1978 during a hiatus in the publication of Headlights. Thanks to the massive efforts of Jeff Erlitz, we have added a complete three-year set of high-res PDFs available for viewing online or download.
It is with great regret and sadness that we’re announcing the cancellation of this year’s ERA convention in Toronto, September 10-14, 2020. With the current lock-down, border closures, and likely longtime restrictions on gatherings of larger than 10 people combined with our older membership, the board of directors deem it prudent to consider rescheduling the convention to Toronto for September 9-13, 2021.
If you have already booked hotel and convention tickets, please await further instructions on both. We are working with the hotel as we speak. Mike Glikin, our treasurer, will reach out to you regarding your convention tickets.
We have a huge selection of Headlights in both print and PDF editions, plus the amazing Elevated Railways of Manhattan book, all available for immediate purchase online. Plus, our convenient Publication Sales section is cleaner and easier to use than ever before.
Free PDFs of almost every Bulletin since 2002 are available for viewing online or download. In addition, we have added many full issues as far back as 1958! There are also covers from the current year, which we add to each month, and complete PDFs of these issues become available at the end of December. View Here
