Eclipse Bulletin No.6, cont'd. SPECIAL ECLIPSE TRAIN FROM MONTREAL The Montreal Centre is sponsoring a special train that will leave Montreal shortly after noon on the day of the eclipse, arriving in the vicinity of Grand'mere before 4:00 p.m. E.D.T. For the return trip, the train will leave around 7:30 p.m., arriving back in Montreal around 11 o'clock. This will give everyone plenty of time to view the partial phases of the eclipse as well as totality. There will be an opportunity to obtain light refreshments in nearby communities and box lunches will be available on the train. The return fare will be approximately $4.50, with children under twelve years of age travelling for half fares. The sale of tickets will be handled by members of the Montreal Centre. This special train would seem to solve a problem for those who have no private means of transportation. You make the trip with others who share your interest in astronomy and you have no worries about traffic or time of arrival. A leaflet giving fall particulars will be available shortly. Please let me know if you would like to receive a copy. R.A.S.C. PENNANTS There will be mazw members of our Society on the highways heading towards the eclipse zone. If arq of us should meet by chance whether on isolated stretches of the Alaska Highway or on the crowded roads of Quebec it would be rather nice to have sane means of identifying each other, and such contacts might be very help- ful to those travelling in unfamiliar country. We have therefore purchased for re-sale a supply of small pennants with the initials "R.A.S.C." in white on a blue field. The price is twenty-five cents. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Please let us know about your plans as they develop. In a subsequent bulletin we intend to list all those who will be participating in our Society' a progranne and we would like to include your group. 5162 Belmore Avenue, Isabel K.
