Saluda Train Tales

November 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Saluda Train Tales will remember E.M. Patterson, engineer of the Helper Train on the Saluda Grade for 47 years. He pushed the trains from Melrose to Saluda, a distance of three miles and retired at the age of 70. He died two years later. He is also the grandfather of actor Pat Hingle, who became a star of Broadway, television and film. Two of Petterson’s granddaughters, Christina Thompson Boies and Katherine Rohling Harrell, will discuss their grandfather and his career. Voluntary donations will be accepted.
