BLE to poll membership

Members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers who work in Boston hung this banner in the main concourse of Boston's South Station on the one-year anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The banner served as a memorial to the victims and families of the attacks, and was displayed in a place of prominence for several weeks after the anniversary. George Newman, Chairman of the Massachusetts State Legislative Board, credits Division 312 (Boston) Local Chairman Richie Prone for coming up with the idea. Brother Newman noted that Mike O'Bryan, Local Chairman of Division 57 (Boston), assisted in funding the project, which was split evenly between Division 57, Division 312 and the Massachusetts State Legislative Board. Brother Newman, who submitted this photo, also thanked the Northeast Division of Amtrak's management for cooperating with the BLE on the project.
