Please respond to
"EL Mail List"

We've recently discussed baseball and football specials that operated on
Erie and EL but today I found information on a BASKETBALL special.

My newly acquired copy of the Erie Magazine for March 1952 gives the
following information:

Students and fans from St. Bonaventure's College in Olean, NY followed the

basketeers to many of the games on Erie trains. For example, nearly 500 of

the fans rode a special Erie train from Olean to New York City's famed
basketball arena, Madison Square Garden Feb 13 to cheer the Bonnies in a
encounter Feb 14 with St. John's University. The Bonnies lost 59-56.

No other details were given as to the train, schedule or return trip.
